In 2015, the festival returns to New Zealand and five Australian cities. An urban music experience like no other, the [Laneway Festival] continues to define itself by its creative collabs (food, markets, local art and more) and A+ line-up.
The full festival line-up will be announced at 9AM on Thursday 2 October - In the meantime, get in a Laneway-state-of-mind with a recap of 2014’s amazing line up.
AUCKLAND: MONDAY 26 JANUARY - SILO PARK
This urban pocket will dish up a day to remember as punters take in music between the Waitemata Harbour and towering Silos. There's plenty of gems back for another year, including The Vivian, fresh local markets and the Thunderdome in Silo Seven.
BRISBANE: SATURDAY 31 JANUARY - BRISBANE SHOWGROUNDS, BOWEN HILLS (16+)
Brisbane Laneway punters are going to be thrilled: the festival will be held on a Saturday for the first time in six years. Plus it’s moving to a completely new, more spacious part of the RNA grounds. Same convenient location: new, improved look and feel. The festival will showcase an impressive line-up of local artistic talent, turning the venue into a creative celebration of both music and the arts. Brisbane Laneway will be open to punters 16 years and older for the first time.
SYDNEY: SUNDAY 1 FEBRUARY - SYDNEY COLLEGE OF THE ARTS (SCA), ROZELLE
Laneway’s long-time home at the SCA in Rozelle combines the natural beauty of Callan Park with the historic sandstone of the College. The addition of two main stages to the natural amphitheatre worked a treat last time and we welcome back the SCA artists who enhanced the site with their work, along with some of the city’s finest food vendors.
ADELAIDE: FRIDAY 6 FEBRUARY - HARTS MILL, PORT ADELAIDE (16+)
After its successful debut in 2014, Laneway returns to the historic site at Harts Mill, Port Adelaide, where an industrial space meets the stunning waterfront of the Port River. The festival promises more grass, incredible food and more shade as it continues to step up the grade at this gorgeous venue. Adelaide will also welcome those aged 16 years and older for the very first time.
MELBOURNE: SATURDAY 7 FEBRUARY - FOOTSCRAY COMMUNITY ARTS CENTRE (FCAC) AND THE RIVER’S EDGE
FCAC and the River’s Edge is the now long-running venue for the spiritual home of the Laneway Festival. Sit on the grass and catch the breeze as you watch the bands on the Amphitheatre Stage or down by the Dean Turner stage on the water. Stellar amenities plus an extravagant Food Village will also feature.
FREMANTLE: SUNDAY 8 FEBRUARY - ESPLANADE RESERVE AND WEST END
This year's move from Perth to Fremantle’s historic West End and Esplanade Reserve was a good idea. There’s a more free flowing space, with pop up restaurants, food stalls and markets helping create the perfect setting for a summer music festival. Watch your favourite artists underneath the giant Norfolk Pines of the Reserve and catch a ride on the resident ferris wheel to take in the stunning views over both the city and the harbour.
