Your Reactions To The Laneway 2017 Lineup Were Hilarious, As Per Usual

Written by Emmy Mack on September 14, 2016

The lineup for the 2017 instalment of St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival dropped today and the internet has been going full Jonah Hill ever since.


Apparently you’re all pretty jazzed about next year’s event, which is going to be headed up by Tame Impala and Nick Murphy (FKA Chet Faker) atop a massive lineup of local and international greats including A.B. Original, AURORA, Car Seat Headrest, Floating Points, Glass Animals, The Julie Ruin, Tourist and more.

As per usual, triple J had first dibs on the lineup announcement this AM, which prompted social media to explode with typically hilarious OTT reactions.

And for maximum LOLs, the J’s have recruited ABC News 24 presenter Kumi Taguchi to read out the best ones with her trademark hard-hitting news reporter steez.

Enjoy your combined efforts in the video below, alongside the full 2017 Laneway lineup & dates.

UPDATE 26/11/16: The Julie Ruin have pulled out of Laneway 2017 due to a medical conflict. A replacement is being organised.
