With Fremantle’s Kings Square redevelopment in full swing, the second ever rendition of Falls Downtown has a new but even more exciting home in Fremantle! Falls Downtown 2018 will be taking over the Fremantle Oval Precinct and once again will be incorporating andreimagining historic sites, streets,carparks and buildings to delight, entertain and inspire our audiences and artists! Our uniquepassouts policy will also continue to retain free flowing access to all of Fremantle’s many delights during the weekend – Fremantle Markets, cafes, restaurants, retailers, artisans, tourist sites, the port, Bathers Beach and more!
Alongside what will be WA’s largest and fanciest outdoor beer garden, see your favourite headliners in comfort under the huge trees or heritage grandstand or get up close on the softest grass in town at the historic Fremantle Oval. Do some detective work and find yourself in the custody of our finest producers, VJ’s and DJ’s in the outdoor Danceteria locked within the walls of the Old Fremantle Police Station ‘000’ complex. Cop that dancing shoes! After dark you can escape into jail – The Old Time Music Hall, as we transform the Old Fremantle Jail with music, dancing and accoutrements designed to transport you to another time. Expect authentic blues, jazz, bluegrass, swing and more.
In the tradition of comedy clubs the world over, we turn Oddfellow basement venue into the Downtown Comedy Club, head down the stairs of one of Fremantle’s oldest pubs and prepare to enter a basement where no-one leaves without a smile, a laugh or a split side.
All the venues will be connected by nooks, crannies and streets lined with markets, food, entertainment, bars and more to ensure a weekend full of delight and adventure. The site is once again a short walk from the Fremantle train station and a stroll away from the beach front, pubs, cafes and shops and is right next door to Fremantle Markets. More details will be released soon, for now, mark the weekend of Jan 06 and Jan 07 in your calendars! Make sure you follow for regular updates.
