Just like pretty much every other festival in the country today, Southbound has today added to its line-up as week.

In alphabetical order, Bertie Blackman, DJ Nu-Mark Toy Set, The Jungle Giants, Loon Lake, Oh Mercy, Rodrigo Y Gabriela and San Cisco have all joined the Perth festival, which usually shares a percentage of its line up with the Falls events, today. Scroll down for more info on them.

They join the already announced:

Angus Stone, Ball Park Music, Beach House, Best Coast, Bombay Bicycle Club, Boy & Bear, Coolio, Cosmo Jarvis, Django Django, First Aid Kit, The Flaming Lips, Hilltop Hoods, The Hives, Hot Chip, Jinja Safari, Lisa Mitchell, Matt Corby, Maximo Park, Millions, SBTRKT, Sharon Van Etten, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Two Door Cinema Club and The Vaccines.

The festival takes place at Sir Stewart Bovell Park in Busselton Friday 4 and Saturday 5 January. Tickets on sale now.

Bertie Blackman
This Aussie songstress is a favourite on the local scene with her quirky style. Her fourth album Pope Innocent X has just been released and here's one of its singles Boy for you to get excited about her performance at Falls.

DJ Nu Mark
You may know this guy as one of the members of alternative rap collective Jurassic 5. He's been DJing since his early teens and is known for experimenting with children's music toys on his tracks. Yes, children's toys, which you will think is very cool when you watch this clip.

The Jungle Giants
Another impressive new band on the scene with an already large following, these guys cap off a great list of indie bands on the lineup. Their infectious, melodic rock is sure to be a hit at the festival.

Loon Lake
These three brothers make you want to dance with their simple, melodic rock. They will no doubt get the crowd up with their hits Bad To Me and Cherry Lips. And we're expecting an epic crowd singalong with the latter track.

Oh Mercy
Chances are you have been singing along to their very slick track Cool as of late. We don't blame you. It's been getting stack of radio play and it's catchy as hell. These guys will be a must see at Falls.

Rodrigo Y Gabriela
This musical duo specialises in playing fast, rhythmic guitars and they are pretty damn good at it. The pair, who both hail from Mexico City, have sold over a million albums worldwide and have featured at some of the globe's biggest festivals including Glastonbury. Will be here at Falls to mesmerize you.

San Cisco
Hands up who hasn't had the song Awkward stuck in their head atleast once? Disn't think there would be anyone. Indie faves San Cisco probably formed for the sole purpose to make pop-rock gems. They will be expected to bring the fun to the stage at Lorne and Marion Bay.
