Falls Festival and Southbound announce second line-ups for 2015/16

The line-ups for Falls Festival and Southbound already boast sets from Foals, Bloc Party, Disclosure, Kurt Vile, Mac Demarco and Courtney Barnett, but now the festivals have grown even bigger with the announcement of three new musical acts and a bill of comedians.

The new announcement is led by 18 year-old Irish singer-songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson – aka Soak – who’ll be touring her debut album Before We Forgot How To Dream.

She’s joined by Swedish singer, rapper and recent Splendour in the Grass visitor Elliphant, plus one of 2015’s breakout acts Jarryd James, whose debut album due in September will feature the singles Do You Remember and Give Me Something.

Meanwhile, over on the Comedy stage punters will be able to catch sets from the newly announced line-up additions Nazeem Hussain, Randy (the felt-faced puppet, not Aziz Ansari’s alter-ego), Adam Rozenbachs, Nick Cody, Becky Lucas and Tien Tran.

Tickets for the Falls Festival dates go on general sale from 9am tomorrow morning, Wednesday August 26. Southbound is on sale now.
