Laneway Festival 2020
Raise a plastic cup to the middle of summer with these big names.
It's been 15 years since Danny Rogers and Jerome Borazio decided to fill a Melbourne alleyway with tunes in 2005. Thankfully, Laneway Festival has just confirmed it will be heading back to its collection of unconventional venues for another year, revealing its jam-packed 2020 lineup.
Returning to Auckland on Monday, January 27, Laneway will raise a plastic cup to the middle of summer with one heck of a lineup. This year's eclectic program is headlined by dance-pop powerhouse Charli XCX. The British songwriter's latest album Charli — which dropped just last week — features everyone from Lizzo to Troye Sivan and Sky Ferreira. It'll be her only New Zealand show, as it'll also be for fellow international heavy hitter, American rapper Earl Sweatshirt.
They'll be joined onstage by Manchester boy band The 1975, Canadian electro artist — and Tik-Tok sensation — BBNO$, London crooner Col3trane and Irish post-punk band Fontaines D.C. On the local front, you'll be able to get down to Soaked Oats, Benee and Mermaidens.
But, enough chit-chat — here's the full 2020 lineup.
