The twelfth edition of the Laneway Festival is coming at you. This January/February (2016), the Laneway Festival will host a tonne of this year’s best artists on prime real estate in Singapore, Auckland, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle. The Adelaide and Brisbane events will be 16+.
The Laneway Festival is hugely excited to reveal the artists of the 2016 edition. From pioneering artists at the top of their game to the acts we’re tipping to break through in the year ahead – Laneway Festival has got the goods.
The 2016 line-up is a heady mix of left-field electronica, shambolic punk, intelligent pop and boundary-pushing hip-hop. It’s the incredibly strong local contingent – already iconic or soon to be legendary Australian bands, many of whom have fresh new music dropping over the next couple of weeks – that we are particularly excited about.
Travelling across three countries and seven cities to perform at some of the best live music settings around, the following artists will hit Singapore, Auckland, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle this January/February.
