Aloe Blacc, Metronomy and more for New Year’s

It was just two weeks back that ITM told you that your New Year’s plans for this year now had the option of involving Crystal Castles and DJ Yoda both of who had been announced for The Falls Festival in Victoria and Tasmania as well as Perth’s Southbound Festival.

Now those plans just got a bit meatier with some extra names added to the list with Southbound organisers today revealing that their lineup (and presumably Falls’) will be boasting the talents of Aloe Blacc and Metronomy who hinted at a December/January visit just recently. It’s time to start taking bets on where else these acts might turn up…

The new additions to the lineup also boast local champs Pnau who’re well and truly making the summer festival rounds and, uh, Josh Thomas. Go fig.

UPDATE: Falls Festival has now added French Bossanova smoothies Nouvelle Vague and Young MC to the lineup. Woo!
