Each year, the Path To Laneway initiative gives one lucky unsigned, local act the chance to share the stage alongside a swarm of international talent on the Fremantle leg of the St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival. The 2016 line-up features the likes of Flume, CHVRCHES, Grimes, Beach House, Hudson Mohawke, Violent Soho, Hermitude and many more.

Rolling around again, this year’s comp promises to unearth those local gems hiding away in the back streets of Perth and give them the chance to open the Mistletone stage this February. 

So, how do bands get this opportunity you ask?
