Falmouth Sound :: The Wombats and The Wailers Hit Falmouth’s Waterside.

29 — 30 August 2009

A string of top calibre bands will converge on Falmouth for a unique new event, Falmouth Sound

Set against a beautiful waterside backdrop at Events Square, Falmouth Sound 2009 promises an eclectic mix of quality music from 21st-century indie, blues and folk to vintage reggae, rocksteady and ska for two days and two nights this August Bank Holiday weekend.

Brought to you by a passionate bunch of music and events aficionados who've worked their magic behind the scenes at the likes of Glastonbury, Beautiful Days and The Eden Sessions, Falmouth Sound brings you two days with two very different vibes to get your hands clapping and feet skanking - the ultimate way to send off the summer in style.Event Co-ordinator Dashiel Munding commented:

"We've been working really hard over the last couple of years to try and bring a really serious live music event to Falmouth. I think there's an audience for a top end annual gig, and now we've got such a great line up locked in I think we're going to have a great first year."

Technicolour indie rockers and festival favourites The Wombats (whose single ‘Let's Dance to Joy Division' won them Best Dancefloor Filler at the NME Awards) top the bill on Saturday, with The Boxer Rebellion (who've outsold artists including Kings Of Leon, Coldplay and MGMT on US iTunes) and finger-picking blues meets Ninja Tune man Fink, joining the party.

On a completely different tip, The Wailers only the most famous reggae band in the world, who backed Bob Marley and have sold over 250 million albums are heading up the show on the Sunday along with the mighty Gabbidon, offering a fusion of reggae, rock, ska and jazz styles from one of the founding members of the legendary 1970s band Steel Pulse.

Further big name acts for both nights will be announced soon, along with local bands that will be gracing the stage on both days when the event will be open for free to allow people to come and support the local music scene.

Regular updates will be made on the website www.falmouthsound.co.uk and via Facebook and Twitter.

Tickets are just £29 for Saturday 29th August and £26 for Sunday 30th August (per person/per night) and are available exclusively from www.ticketangels.co.uk
