Real Estate added to Auckland Laneway line-up

St Jerome’s Laneway Festival is delighted to confirm REAL ESTATE has been added to the Auckland line-up.

Real Estate are the third of six acts being added to the Laneway Festival line-up. Like a Christmas Advent calendar – you get a treat each week.

Disarmingly melodic and straight outta Brooklyn, NY, Real Estate proved once again on Days, 2011’s sophomore effort, that nothing beats washed-out guitars, lo-fi reverb, and plenty of sunshine. Like the summer you wish would never end, frontman Martin Courtney’s tales of the suburbs saw Days land at #9 in Pitchfork’s Album of the Year poll, while in 2012 the high school buddies played everywhere from Coachella to China. Expect something special NZ.

They performed to a sold out crowd at the start of this year so we're anticipating these guys will be a favourite on the day.

Real Estate will join the following artists in the spectacular setting of Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter on Monday 28th January (Auckland Anniversary Day):

A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS - ALT-J – BAILTERSPACE – BAT FOR LASHES - BEACH PIGS - CLOUD NOTHINGS - DEER PARK - DIVINE FITS – JAPANDROIDS - JESSIE WARE - KINGS OF CONVENIENCE - LAWRENCE ARABIA - NICOLAS JAAR - OF MONSTERS AND MEN - PHELPS AND MUNRO - STREET CHANT - THE MEN - THE PHOENIX FOUNDATION - YEASAYER
