Falls Fest sells out, apart from a few locals-only tickets

GENERAL tickets for Falls Music and Arts Festival Byron have sold out, meaning only locals can still get tickets for the festival but these are not expected to last long.

Byron Shire and south Tweed Shire residents can still buy tickets through the Falls Festival website.

All ticket types are available to locals, including special New Year's Eve only "Boogie Nights" tickets ($99).

Only the purchaser needs to be a local and can buy up to four tickets.

Falls Music and Arts Festival Byron is an 18+ event.

Ewingsdale mother and daughter Laurel and Eva Judell have their locals tickets for Falls Festival already.

"My partner and I are only going to Falls on New Year's Eve," says mum Laurel Judell.

"Every year there's a lot of trying to work out what we're going to do on New Year's Eve.

"I'm a big Salt 'n' Pepa fan so that's us sorted this year.

"I went to Falls last year and I was really impressed. It's laidback and friendly.

"The big amphitheatre is beautiful because you can sit up on the hill with friends and hear and see perfectly, and Eva and her buddies can get down in the front. We'll leave that to the younger folk."

Having recently turned 18, this will be Eva's first Falls Festival.

Working locally as a DJ, she has a broad taste in music and is keen to check out Alt-J, Glass Animals, SBTRKT, Joey Bada$$, Jamie XX, Tycho and Badbadnotgood.

"I'm also excited to support my buddies in local band TORA," she said.
