Since its inception in 2004 in Melbourne, Australia, the Laneway Festival has become synonymous, as they say, with hot summer days, awesome locations and diverse, forward-thinking line-ups filled to overflowing with vital, surprising bands. Favouring talent over mainstream success, Laneway has consistently brought compelling, boundary-pushing acts to discerning punters and next year’s event will continue that tradition. With Sydney and Melbourne Laneway Festivals having already sold out, Aucklands second Laneway Festival in the newly revamped AOTEA SQUARE is looking to follow suit with one of the best line-ups ever, featuring, on two different stages: YEASAYER, FOALS, LADYHAWKE, CHK CHK CHK, DEERHUNTER, BLONDE REDHEAD, CHILDREN’S HOUR, WARPAINT, BEACH HOUSE, ARIEL PINK’S HAUNTED GRAFITTI, LAWRENCE ARABIA, HOLY FUCK, AN EMERALD CITY.

And now, after performing the day before at St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival in Auckland, a finely selected group of bands and musicians from the Laneway line-up will head to the Wellington Town Hall. Punters unable to make it north to the full festival will be guaranteed a special evening of musical discovery and appreciation featuring on the bill: LADYHAWKE, YEASAYER, DEERHUNTER, BEACH HOUSE, BLONDE REDHEAD, ARIEL PINK’S HAUNTED GRAFITTI.
