Today Is the Day
Since its inception in 2004, the St Jerome's 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 cutting edge talent over mainstream success, Laneway has consistently delivered compelling, boundary-pushing acts to discerning punters and next year's event will continue that tradition.
In 2011, Laneway returns to the disparate yet uniformly gorgeous metropolitan settings of Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Auckland. Whether the backdrop is an historic sandstone courtyard, a riverbed overlooking the city or a tree-lined laneway a stone's throw from the CBD, we guarantee a day of musical discovery and revelry that'll be as scenic as it will be memorable.
Next year's event will also feature a stage co-programmed by our friends at The Windish Agency (Chicago) Eat Your Own Ears (London). These two tastemarkers are among the most respected in their territories and their involvment reflects both their close association with the Laneway Festival and our commitment to uncovering the freshest artists from every corner of the globe.
Speaking of global, stay tuned for news on Laneway Festival's official launch into Asia later this year!
The Laneway Festival is pleased to announce that its association with Young Care, an organisation which works to provide choice in care and accommodation options for over 700,000 young Australians who need it. All gold coin donations made at the festival will go directly towards Young Care.
