Surf rockers OCEAN ALLEY went from local kooks to salty dog legends when they took out the top spot in triple j’s Hottest 100 last year with their hit single ‘Confidence’. The perennially chill Northern Beaches band wouldn’t have had much time to catch waves in 2018, playing 96 shows across 10 countries and 60 cities, including selling 25,000 tickets across 15 sold out Australian shows. They've come a long way since their first paid gig at the local Mona Vale Hotel back in 2012 and have built a now-rabid fan base. Somewhat inexplicably, they’re Laneway virgins, so do take it upon yourselves to give them a hero’s welcome. [Only Australian shows this summer]
