Laneway Festival SXSW Showcase Lineup Announced

UPDATE 02/10/14: The Laneway Festival 2015 lineup has been revealed!

Following the lineup announcement of a Secret Sounds showcase at this year’s SXSW, which many hope dropped clues about lineups for Splendour In The Grass and Falls Festival, Laneway organisers have now announced Kirin J Callinan and Eagulls as part of their own showcase.

A similar showcase put on by Laneway organisers at last year’s South By Southwest saw performances by Scottish trio Chvrches, Brooklyn punks Parquet Courts, local golden boy Vance Joy, and chillwave maestro XXYYXX, all of whom later appeared on the lineup for Laneway 2014.

The lineup for the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival 4th Annual SXSW Party include singing-songwriting Victorian DD Dumbo, Sydney-bred purveyor of the avant-garde Kirin J Callinan, and Brisbane indie outfit The Creases, who together make up this year’s eclectic Australian contingent.

International muscle comes in the form of Leeds outfit Eagulls, bedroom-based Englishmen Forest Swords and Sohn, trashy Londoners Fat White Family, acclaimed indie folk vanguard Mutual Benefit, noisy and NSFW New Yorkers Perfect Pussy, and Glass Animals (touring soon).

The festival lineup rumour mill is quickly gaining momentum. Last week, the organisers of Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival unveiled the first round of acts set for their 2014 lineup, which includes Franz Ferdinand and Kanye West, sending Splendour In The Grass fans into immediate blogging mode.
