Laneway Festival 2020
This year's lineup is headed by Charli XCX and Earl Sweatshirt.
It's all change for Sydney's Laneway Festival with a new inner-city location for the first time: The Domain. According to organisers, it'll allow the festival to have bigger stages and better sound — and it will be a bit more accessible by public transport. Sure, it won't have the charm of the Rozelle location but we're sure it'll pack out with fans of dance-pop powerhouse Charli XCX, who is headlining this year's event.
The British songwriter's latest album Charli features everyone from Lizzo to Troye Sivan and Sky Ferreira. The Laneway Festivals will be her only Aussie shows, which is the same case for fellow international heavy hitter, American rapper Earl Sweatshirt.
They'll be joined onstage by Canadian electro artist — and TikTok sensation — BBNO$, New Zealand's Benee, London crooner Col3trane and Irish post-punk band Fontaines DC. On the local front, you'll be able to get down to DMA's, Hatchie, Stella Donnelly, Hockey Dad, King Gizzard and the Lizard Gizard and 2019's Triple J Hottest 100 winners, Ocean Alley.
