Adelaide, we have been chosen by the almighty. Triple J has just announced that they will be heading to our humble home for a live broadcast of Laneway Festival on February 5th 2016. Now, this might have something to do with the fact that Adelaide happens to be the first stop on the Australian leg of the Laneway tour, but it’s probably more to do with the fact that Adelaide crowds deliver the goods.
From 12pm on Friday the 5th of Feb, Triple J listeners from across the country will be able to tune in to hear exclusive live sets and interviews from the huge line-up that includes Grimes, CHVRCHES, Flume, Hudson Mohawke, FIDLAR and many, many more.
Triple J’s content director, Ollie Ward says, “We’re so excited to hit Adelaide for this special broadcast. The Laneway line-up is one of the strongest ever and we know the excitement of the Adelaide punters will be palpable to listeners around the country.”
So Adelaide, it’s the moment we’ve been waiting for. Let’s show the rest of the country what a good time sounds like.
In other exciting news, Triple J has once again offered the opening spot for the festival to independent Unearthed artists. Local rock heroes, Bad//Dreems scored this spot back in 2014 and they sure have come a long way since. Which Adelaide artists do you think deserve the prestigious spot? Entries are now open!
