September 21, 2022
It's back, it's big and it's heading around Australia in February 2023: St Jerome's Laneway Festival and its impressive lineup, that is. Returning for the first time since 2020 — since celebrating 15 years since Danny Rogers and Jerome Borazio first decided to fill a Melbourne alleyway with tunes — the beloved fest boasts a phenomenal list of talent taking to its stages for its huge and eagerly awaited comeback tour. Here are three names to get you started: HAIM, Joji and Phoebe Bridgers.
Laneway has been teasing its 2023 return since earlier this year, and locked in dates and venues mere days ago — but now exactly who you'll be dancing to in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth has been announced.
Also on the bill: Finneas, Fontaines DC, Fred again..., Girl in Red, slowthai and Turnstile, as well as 100 Gecs, Chaos in the CBD, Knucks and Mallrat. Yes, the lineup goes on from there.
In Australia, the festival will kick off at Brisbane Showgrounds on Saturday, February 4, then head to Sydney Showground on Sunday, February 5 — one of Laneway's new 2023 venues. From there, it's off to Adelaide CBD's Bonython Park on Friday, February 10; Melbourne's The Park in Flemington on Saturday, February 11; and Perth's Wellington Square on Sunday, February 12.
Clearly, there's a whole heap of reasons to be excited — from HAIM's first Australian tour since 2017 (and definitely the first since Alana killed it on the big screen in Licorice Pizza) to Bridgers' return after a huge few years, just to name a couple. Also on the list: just Laneway being back and livening up late summer in general.
Enough preamble; here's what you're after — the full 2023 lineup:
