The Laneway Festival 2014 lineup was announced earlier this week, delivering a crowd-pleasing roster of well-knowns and high-quality not-so-well-knowns, and once again demonstrating that those in charge of curating the festival truly know their audience.
Featuring an array of so-hip-it-hurts acts from across the globe, festivalgoers will be spoiled for choice once they spill through the gates next January/February. We figured we’d provide you with a little advice in advance to make sure you’re prepped to make the most of your Laneway experience. Here’s our top 10 acts we’ll be checking out when Laneway rolls into town next year.
Key player behind chillwavers The xx, production virtuoso Jamie XX is a no-brainer for your Laneway Festival 2014 schedule. Jamie xx may have just performed a run of headlining shows Down Under scheduled around The xx’s recent Australian tour, but with a treasure trove of tracks to select from, including 2011’s reimaginging of Gil Scott-Heron’s I’m New Here, dubbed We’re New Here, you can be sure you’ll never catch the same show twice. Big tick.
