“St Jerome’s Laneway Festival
once again proved it is the premiere event of the summer, setting not only the musical trends for the next 12 months but a benchmark for other festivals to follow.” - Adelaide Advertiser

"A festival experience about as pleasurable as you could hope for...Everyone’s a winner." [4.5 stars] - Sydney Morning Herald

"The calibre of music, as always, is what has made Laneway such a reliable fixture on the festival circuit, but their no-stone-unturned approach to organisation - taking in everything from quality drinks to vintage clothes stalls - has turned a very good event into a truly great one." - The Age

"It’s the best-run, best-booked, punter-first festival going." - FasterLouder

The Laneway Festival is hugely excited to reveal the artists of the 2016 edition. From pioneering artists at the top of their game to the acts we’re tipping to break through in the year ahead - Laneway Festival has got the goods.

The 2016 line-up is a heady mix of left-field electronica, shambolic punk, intelligent pop and boundary-pushing hip-hop. It’s the incredibly strong local contingent - already iconic or soon to be legendary Australian bands, many of whom have fresh new music dropping over the next couple of weeks - that we are particularly excited about.

Travelling across three countries and seven cities to perform at some of the best live music settings around, the following artists will hit Singapore, Auckland, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle this January/February. For previously announced dates and venues details, head here.
