Last but certainly not least was Flume, he kicked off his set at 11.45pm, just enough time to pump the crowd up with a song before counting down to midnight with what would have had to of been the entire 20,000+ people in attendance at Falls Festival. The lights went dim as Flume called for the audience to pull out their phones and light up the valley. Thousands of phones erupted as the black abyss turned into a sea of mobile phone lights. It was truly breathtaking to see so many people in one place, all for the same reason, to celebrate the New Year with amazing musicians and their loved ones. As the clock struck midnight the crowd erupted into screams and cheers as confetti burst out from the stage and the sound technicians deck all over the crowd. It was absolutely heart warming, beautiful and so fun – thank you to Flume for helping everyone at Falls Festival in Byron Bay bring in the New Year the right way – together!
