Prepare yourselves for the 2015 Laneway Festival line-up, one of our favourites yet.
Traversing seven cities and three countries, the festival is well and truly settled into its home in each state. From the sparkling backdrop of the Maribyrnong and Port Rivers in Melbourne and Adelaide, the beachside location in Fremantle, the historic grounds of Sydney College of The Arts and our brand new home in Brisbane, the event is a true highlight on the Singapore, New Zealand and Australian music calendars.
Hot off the heels of a spectacular summer of sold-out concerts and rocking the opening of the Commonwealth Games before a worldwide audience of more than 1.5 billion viewers, Rod Stewart today confirmed that he’s bringing “The Hits,” to Australia and New Zealand in 2015.
Frontier Touring unveiled the legendary rockers itinerary which includes nine concerts in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Dunedin, Auckland, plus special outdoor concerts at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley and the iconic Hanging Rock in Macedon. Notably Rod will be the first artist to have performed at Hanging Rock on multiple tours.

Frontier Touring have announced they are bringing Jimmy Eat World back to Australia and New Zealand this November in celebration of the ten year anniversary of their iconic album Futures’ release.
After the band’s appearance Down Under earlier this year for a run of very successful festival sets, fans have been hanging for more.
The Australian and New Zealand leg of the tour immediately follows a massive run of US dates in commemoration of the pivotal album. The Futures 10 Year Anniversary Tour will kick off in Auckland before crossing the ditch to visit all Australian capital cities and sees the band performing their pivotal album from front to back.
US metal favourites PRONG will tour Australia and New Zealand for the first time ever this coming November for Nightmare Music. Founded by singer/guitarist Tommy Victor in 1986, the band has never made it to Australian shores at any point in their 28-year long career. But all that is about to change…

A band with humble economic beginnings whose musical identity was forged in the context of living through Brazil’s authoritarian military dictatorship, SEPULTURA would go on to become Brazilian ambassadors to the metal world, revered master architects of the death/thrash genre, and the most successful and influential heavy metal band from the Federal Republic of Brazil.
In response to the recent events in Queensland and Christchurch, Foo Fighters have announced the following shows:

The shows have been organized to provide aid for the victims of Queensland floods and Christchurch earthquakes.

||At the beginning of their career, EXODUS gained huge notoriety in the international underground scene as a result of the tape trading community. Their dynamic guitar riffing, adrenaline-inducing drum work, and bloodied live shows made all the difference in the band’s mission to take Bay Area Thrash to a worldwide audience.
By 1983, the band line-up included guitarist Rick Hunolt and bassist Rob McKillop and had inspired the likes of Metallica, Testament, Death Angel, and Vio-lence. EXODUS’ debut, the immortal, must-have, undisputed thrash classic Bonded By Blood was released in and a vast tour with Slayer and Venom propelled the band into a household name.
