2016 saw Laneway Festival prove itself once again to be one of the most celebrated music events in the country. With more tickets sold than ever before, Laneway punters were treated to a huge selection of artists across all genres - the dreamy tones of Beach House and DIIV made for a transcendental experience whilst FIDLAR, Violent Soho and DMA’s hammered home the guitar contingent. Flume debuted his new material including special guest appearances from MC Vince Staples and Kai, and Grimes turned electro-pop on its head with her energetic dancer-infused sundowner set.
The New Zealand contingent was particularly exciting including some brand new live acts (BAYNK, Leisure, Silicon) and the reformation of a legendary Flying Nun band - High Dependency Unit.

2016 marked the seventh New Zealand date and the final year at Silo Park - a unique setting alongside Waitemata Harbour and the towering silos, which this year was expanded to take in more food and beverage options, facilities and shade. As we look towards an exciting new-and-improved Auckland venue for 2017, a capacity crowd farewelled this iconic site after five years of growth. 

  • Fidlar (US) - Laneway Festival was fuckin awesome!...Thank you Australia and Auckland for everything!
  • Flume (AUS) - Thanks Laneway Festival that was awesome...
  • Violent Soho (AUS) - Laneway Festival has been brutal! Thanks so much to everyone who made it out and especially to those who left their guts in the circle pit. We had the time of our lives!
