One thing we’ve always loved about Laneway is that you walk out of the festival with a few new bands to love. In the early days, the event was always about discovering acts you probably hadn’t heard about in the popular sphere.
13 years on from their beginnings in 2005, it seems the organisers haven’t lost their spark. Out of the 27 acts on the disgustingly good Laneway 2018 lineup, only two have played the festival before.
Laneway Festival have never failed at picking the most exciting acts in the world. 2018’s lineup shows they haven’t lost their touch.
Not to mention, Laneway will mark Slowdive’s first show in Australia since their comeback album, The War On Drugs’ first Aussie showing since the tail end of 2015, and Bonobo’s first time back since he rattled our minds at the Sydney Opera House a few years back. Can you tell we’re excited?
