That’s a wrap! The St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival has come to an end for 2017 and we’d like to say a huge thank you to (you) the music fans and everyone who partied with us this year. It was so much fun.
Some of our favourite international acts made their debut in Australia at Laneway 2017 (NAO, Aurora, Car Seat Headrest, Floating Points, Whitney & more) alongside this year’s incredibly strong local line-up. We started a podcast about those who inspire us most, celebrated the world’s biggest musical democracy at our Hottest 100 Backyard Party in Brisbane, and introduced our new hotline 1800LANEWAY with the help of our friends Camp Cope.
The festival would also like to thank the local councils; our partner triple j and the media for their support; our valued sponsors; the local artists, market holders and vendors who make Laneway that extra bit special; our festival MCs A.B. Original, and the endlessly talented artists who made up the Laneway line-up this year.
Check out the highlights from Adelaide, Sydney and Fremantle in the video below. [Insert wrap video].
See you next year!
