You need to see RÜFÜS kill it live at Falls Festival

Over ten thousand people made the trek to the Mount Duneed in Victoria last month for Falls Festival, after bushfires in the event’s traditional home of Lorne forced promoters to pull off a last-minute relocation.

Part of the contingent were homegrown heroes RÜFÜS, who stepped up for a primetime set on day two of the festival. Now, thanks to the ABC – who were there to record some of the best Falls moments for their NYE Fireworks telecast – you can see the Sydney trio nail their big hit You Were Right live on stage. The track is part of the forthcoming album Bloom, which drops worldwide on January 22 through local label Sweat it Out.

RÜFÜS were due to head west today to play Southbound, the WA festival that shares many of its acts with Falls. But this morning the festival announced that it was cancelling the 2016 event due to bushfires in the surrounding areas. “We cannot compromise patron safety and proceed knowing people’s lives are at risk getting to the event,” says festival director David Chitty. “Our thoughts are with those in danger due to the nearby fire.”
