TONES & I - yes, the fastest rising act in the world right now - is literal proof that betting the house works. The former retail worker (real name: Toni Waston) quit her job after a busking session in Byron Bay led to record crowds, quickly parlaying her talent for the streets into the studio. Tones’ first single ‘Johnny Run Away’ was a genuine smash; #1 most played on triple j, it reached radio station around the world and was certified platinum. Her next single ‘Dance Monkey’ rocketed to the top of the charts, and made Tones the first Australian female to have a #1 ARIA single since Delta Goodrem in 2015...huge. Now you get a pretty good idea of the kind of crowd you can expect at her debut Laneway slot. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. [Only Australian shows this summer]
