Here be the first official announcement of the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival 2010.

There are some rather good plans in store for music fans next year. Spectacular new sites in Sydney and Melbourne, for instance. A return to the unique settings of Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth and a brand new event in New Zealand. And in keeping with the Laneway Festival’s now-longstanding commitment to supporting the best and most exciting new talent within the local community – whatever form that may take - there will be designer markets, indie cinemas featuring new and cult films and local food stalls to complete the assault on your senses at each event too.

But let’s cut straight to the most important part: the line-up. From the seminal to the scene-starting, the esoteric to the exhilarating, the Laneway Festival is again pleased to be able to bring you a roll call of artists that is as exciting as it is diverse.

Echo & The Bunnymen, Florence and The Machine, Black Lips, The XX, Daniel Johnston, Sarah Blasko, N.AS.A, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Hockey, Dappled Cities, Mumford and Sons, Radio Clit, The Very Best, Wild Beasts, Whitely, The Middle East, Kid Sam, Dirty Three (Melbourne only) and more to be announced!
