Falls was created from a campfire idea. It was on the Falls home, the very Lorne farm, sitting around an annual NYE campfire with guitars, music, friends and family that Simon Daly decided he extend the invitation to everyone and host a music festival. Sure, why not? With no previous experience or connections he chose a NYE timeline, this gave him twelve months to pull it all together. Roping in local bands and friends, they somehow managed to pull it off.
The result was a one-night affair, tickets were just $20, 5000 people were expected and over 11,000 people showed up. Traffic was banked for miles, so much so, the surrounding farmers had to open up their land to the expanding masses. People continued to roll in with the music throughout the night, it was a success beyond belief and the rest as they say is history.
