UPDATE: 14/09/16: The official lineup has now arrived! You can check it out here.
ORIGINAL STORY: A poster revealing the supposed lineup for Laneway Festival 2017 has been posted online, teasing us with who might be touring around Australia next January and February.
While it hasn’t been confirmed yet, the poster (which has hit Reddit and Twitter and is available to view below) lists a massive lineup headed by Bon Iver, Travis Scott, Blood Orange and Run The Jewels.
It doesn’t stop there, either. There’s also great Aussie acts like Sampa The Great and Vera Blue joining internationals like Bat For Lashes and Todd Terje.
Earlier in the year British songstress Nao leaked her potential place on the lineup, revealing that she’d been asked to come to Australia and do Laneway Festival. She’s included on this alleged leaked lineup, giving it some legitimacy.
It’s common for big festival lineups to be falsely leaked in the lead-up to the proper announcement, though. Just last week the lineup for FOMO Festival was supposedly uncovered before the official announce, only to be shut down by organisers who revealed a different lineup just a day later.
US rapper and Panda hitmaker Desiigner appeared on that fake lineup and he also is included on this ‘leaked’ Laneway lineup.
You’ll find out whether this is fake or not when Laneway drops the official lineup on Wednesday, 14th September. Until then, check out the ‘leaked’ poster alongside the 2017 Laneway Festival dates and venues, below.
