Melbourne Laneway Festival acknowledges the Wurundjeri people as the Traditional Owners of the Country where we work, learn and meet. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters, culture, and community; and pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and to Elders past and present. Sovereignty was never ceded.
