Well Laneway have done it again. Following this year’s extravaganza led by post-mash-up maestro Girl Talk, the festival’s organsiers have gone ahead and set their sights high, pulling the legendary Echo & The Bunnymen to headline the festivites.
Add to this Black Lips, Eddy Current Suppression Ring and the muthafucking Dirty Three (Melbourne only), plus the fact that I’ve heard great things from alright people about most of the other bands, and voila, you have a festival that’s worth tearing your sphincter over.
The Line Up…
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 & Sons [Performing in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne & Perth], Radio Clit, The Very Best, Wild Beasts [Performing in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne & Perth], Whitley, The Middle East, Kid Sam, Dirty Three (Melbourne only) and more to be announced.
