The Laneway 2016 Line-Up Has Landed


The Laneway 2016 Line-Up Has Landed

Zoe Walker

Many of us woke up on Tuesday morning to a message from a mate saying something along the lines of... LANEWAY!!?? Or at least some kind of poorly phrased question, to which there is only one reasonable response. Yes. A million times yes. We’re all going to Laneway. The anticipated announcement came early Tuesday morning and the deal is pretty much sealed.

This should be no surprise, as St Jerome's Laneway Festival is renowned for delivering only the most supreme acts. Ingredients required for the perfect Laneway line-up include local and international acts, well-known favourites and most importantly, the top picks for up-and-coming artists that are expected to make waves throughout the coming year.

We can expect some massively rowdy crowds for Australian rockers The Smith Street Band, DMA’s, Violent Soho and of course, our mates from across the Pacific, FIDLAR.

Dancing times will also be had as huge names like Flume, Purity Ring, Grimes, Hudson Mohawke and Hermitude bring the electro vibes. Clearly someone over at Laneway must have been deadset on bringing the world’s most innovative electro acts, because this line-up is absolutely teeming with them.  

The only thing you have to worry about now is the dreaded release of set times because life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, and it simply won’t be possible to witness every single one of these prime acts.

Adelaidians will be heading to Harts Mill in Port Adelaide on the 5th of February to bask in the musical goodness. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, 30th of September. Don't mess around with this one, get those tix!
