BRISBANE, MELBOURNE, AUCKLAND (NEW ZEALAND), ADELAIDE, SYDNEY, FREMANTLE
Laneway Festival returned in 2019 as one of the most respected and popular events on the Australian & New Zealand music calendar. Our fifteenth edition saw the announcement of a new venue for Melbourne Laneway, now taking place at the lush Footscray Park. The move marked an exciting new chapter for Melbourne Laneway, which started in a Lonsdale St alleyway and came of age at Footscray Community Arts Centre.
This year’s line-up once again showcased the best rising local and international talent. R&B queen Jorja Smith made her Australian & New Zealand debut alongside Clairo, Denzel Curry and Rex Orange County. It was the twenty-year-old English crooner ROC who ignited crowd-singalongs across every leg of the festival with his lovelorn sentiments and dreamy tunes. Off the back of their record-breaking tour, Gang of Youths closed out the festival in Fremantle with a very special performance marking the last show of their album cycle.
