St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival 2015
Laneway has come a long way since its inception in a shopping mall loading bay.
It's ten years since Danny Rogers and Jerome Borazio decided to fill a Melbourne alleyway with tunes in 2005. This year, Laneway Festival blows out the candles with one of its biggest lineups yet. Kicking off in Singapore on January 24 in The Meadow, Gardens by the Bay, Laneway will run through seven dates including Auckland's Silo Park on January 26, Sydney's Sydney College of the Arts on February 1 and Melbourne's Footscray Community Arts Centre and River's Edge on February 7, finishing up at its new home in Fremantle's Esplanade Reserve and West End on February 8.
Returning to the Australian touring circuit is UK on-repeat outfit Jungle, festival jaw-droppers Future Islands and Melbourne's lives-up-to-the-hype queen Courtney Barnett. Two of the biggest hypecards of the bunch, FKA Twigs and BANKS, will fight for the midnight hushed vocal crown. Then there's the ever-epic St. Vincent, punk-as-fuck UK band Eagulls, smooooooth king Flying Lotus, Harlem's top-of-the-game hip hop outfit Ratking and the triumphant returns of Rustie, Jon Hopkins, POND and crisp-as-blazes Caribou. Then there's Mac DeMarco and his mum, Agnes. But enough talk, here's that lineup you're after.
