Today was supposed to be the day that the 2018 Laneway Lineup was announced, if not for a slight slip up by the festival’s official media partner, Pedestrian TV, who accidentally released the full lineup yesterday.
However, the Laneway Festival organisers were quick to respond, releasing their promo video for the festival to Triple J and confirming the lineup.
Despite this early leak, the lineup they have looks absolutely outstanding. Canadian multi-instrumentalist Mac DeMarco and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals were already confirmed as the first major editions to the lineup before the leak.
However, the unveiling of the full lineup has shown that the Festival has got plenty more exciting acts up it’s sleeve, with the likes of Father John Misty, Bonobo, The War on Drugs and Wolf Alice joining the party.
The Festival will be travelling around the country to Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Fremantle in February next year.
Visa Checkout pre-sale tickets will be available from Thursday, 14th September, with tickets to the general public available from Monday, 18th September.
Demand is expected to be very high, so be sure to grab a ticket as quickly as possible!
