The lineup for next year’s Laneway Festival was announced today, I think it looks like a good one, as usual (and unlike the BDO) they’ve come up with a selection of bands who have mostly not been here before (well, Adelaide at least, if not Australia) and who might well not tour here otherwise. The only international acts I’ve seen before are Les Savy Fav (who’ve been to Adelaide twice, but those who saw them – particularly the insane show with Pretty Girls Makes Graves in a basement on Hindley St – will be eager to see them again) and Holy Fuck who I saw in Wellington, NZ, and who I’m happy to see again. There are a couple of others who’ve been to Adelaide before (!!! and Ariel Pink) but I missed them. Tickets go on sale next Wednesday (20th), last year it sold out, largely I think because of Mumford & Sons, not sure if there’s any drawcard like that this time, I have no idea how popular these bands are.
