Stormzy, Steve Lacy, Dominic Fike and Raye Headline Laneway Festival's Huge 2024 Lineup
Come February, you'll also be catching AJ Tracey, d4vd, Dope Lemon, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and more.
September 05, 2023
First, St Jerome's Laneway Festival announced its 2024 dates and venues. Now, it's time for the news that every fest fan is always waiting for: the lineup. Fancy some grime? A Euphoria star? A mix of international must-sees and homegrown up-and-comers? A swag of folks making their first trips our way? Then consider yourself sorted — starting with headliners Stormzy, Steve Lacy, Dominic Fike and Raye.
Stormzy tops the roster after he was meant to head Down Under in 2022, but pulled out of Spilt Milk and his Australian and Zealand tour. At the Aussie fest, he was replaced by Lacy, in fact, but now the UK sensation and the 'Bad Habit' talent will share the same Laneway bill.
Fike heads from the screen to Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland's stages — and Raye comes our way with 'Escapism' still stuck in everyone's heads.
From there, the lineup also spans AJ Tracey, d4vd, Dope Lemon, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and more. All of the above acts will play all cities, with some fellow talents only popping up in either Australia or Aotearoa.
Stormzy and Fike are doing exclusive Laneway tours — so, of you want to see either (or both), you'll only catch them at the fest while they're in both countries. In Australia, Lacy is exclusive in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.
There's a bit of stability to 2024's list of venues, after 2023 took Laneway to a heap of new spots. The festival started by Danny Rogers and Jerome Borazio in the mid-00s will kick off at Brisbane Showgrounds on Saturday, February 3, then head to Sydney Showground on Sunday, February 4 — so, exactly where it took place this year.
Still in Australia, Laneway also has a Friday, February 9 date with Bonython Park in Adelaide on the agenda, then a Saturday, February 10 run at The Park, Flemington in Melbourne and a Sunday, February 11 wrap-up show in Wellington Square in Perth. Again, these are all the same locations that 2023's fests hit up.
Over in New Zealand, the event will take over Western Springs in Auckland on Tuesday, February 6. That date means that it's moving to Waitangi Day. And 2024's venue comes after 2023's Auckland Laneway stop was cancelled due to due to the Auckland floods.
