Today's The Day
Since the 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, suprising 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.
In 2011, New Zealand will experience their second Laneway Festival in the newly revamped AOTEA SQUARE, beside the Auckland Town Hall. The square itself is perfect for Laneway, with room to fit stalls, stages and audience comfortably, and more space and atmosphere than ever. Punters will have access to two different stages, enough amennities to cater for those wanting to wander between the stages or stay in front of their favourite all day, plus local arts showcase and delicious cuisine.
And now, the line-up. The most important, exciting acts of this year and next. Behold:
YEASAYER - FOALS - LADYHAWKE- !!! (CHK CHK CHK) - DEERHUNTER - BBLONDE REDHEAD - CHILDREN'S HOUR - WARPAINT- BEACH HOUSE - ARIEL PINK'S HAUNTED GRAFITTI - LAWRENCE ARABIA - HOLY FUCK - AN EMERALD
