FKA Twigs will reportedly appear on the lineup for the 2015 instalment of St Jerome’s Laneway Festival. The news comes via News Corp journalist Mikey Cahill, who interviewed the critically acclaimed UK electronic artist last week and tweeted that she “will play” Laneway Festival 2015.
According to FasterLouder, Cahill, who pens News Corp‘s weekly Rock City column in the Herald Sun, said a tour from the rising UK star in January/February was “TBC” (meaning “to be confirmed”), which puts her schedule in-sync with that of the 2015 instalment of the boutique indie event.
If Cahill’s tweet is accurate, FKA Twigs, real name Tahliah Barnett, is the first name that punters can expect on the 2015 Laneway lineup. Organisers have been keeping the lineup under tight wraps, giving few leads to fans besides possible clues in the lineup of their SXSW Showcase.
