We’ve got a whole new batch of Laneway Festival 2015 Sideshows that have been announced today, with east coast headline shows scheduled for many of the exciting acts named on the Laneway Festival 2015 lineup.

Additionally, Norwegian indie rockers Highasakite will return once more to Australia in January for Laneway 2015 plus Sydney and Melbourne sideshows, as will bluesy rocker Benjamin Booker and Altana singer/songwriter Raury. While Flying Lotus and Lykke Li will play intimate Melbourne shows.
