The 2015 St Jerome’s Laneway Festival line-up has been announced this morning, with a number of named acts set to appear exclusively at the country wide touring festival.
Amongst the names announced this morning, Mercury award nominated duo Royal Blood, Melbourne’s Courtney Barnett, disco duo Flight Facilities and psych rockers Pond, adding to the already announced Mac Demarco (and his mum….).
Laneway will return to its home of five years in Singapore, The Meadow Gardens By The Bay as well as The Silo in Auckland. Brisbane and Perth punters get a new home with the Brisbane leg moving to a new, more spacious part of the RNA Showgrounds and Perth making the leap to Fremantle where the event will be held at the Esplanade Reserve and West End. Sydney will remain at the Sydney College of the Arts, Melbourne will return to its long-running venue, the Footscray Community Arts Centre and Adelaide will hold its sophomore event once again at the Harts Mill.
