Laneway 2015 Lineup Picks

Laneway 2015 Lineup Picks

| On 19, Oct 2014

St Jerome’s Laneway Festival has had some stellar lineups in the past, and somehow manages to keep bettering itself year after year.

Since it’s inception in 2004, the decade old festival has become a significant day on the festival calendar for music lovers near and far. Embracing the best parts of our summer festival season, Laneway Festival is a day that overflows with good music, good dancing, and good vibes.

Returning for it’s 11th year, Laneway 2015 has a bill of artists that are guaranteed to get you to groove, mosh or rave (whichever your preferred manner of losing your shit via senseless dancing may be) till the moon trades places with the sun.

Tickets for the festival went on sale this week, and to celebrate we thought we’d share a list of some of the acts that we’d rather endure the crippling post-festival hangover for than miss.

 

Andy Bull

Andy Bull

Having released his latest record Sea of Succession earlier this year, an album that harbours a succession of catchy singles that have undeniably been stuck in your head before, this rising pop sensation is an act that you won’t want to miss.

 

Courtney Barnett

CourtneyBarnett528x476

After just taking home the title of Best Independent Artist from the Independent Music Awards, this quirky character’s tunes will have you twisting your feet in time with her honestly hilarious hits. She’s already graced the stages of iconic festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury and Lollapalooza, now it’s Laneway’s turn to experience the fun time that our globally loved local ignites.

 

FKA Twigs

FKAtwigs528x476

Hailing from the UK comes the enigma that is FKA Twigs. After releasing her album LP1 earlier this year, that challenged conventional ideas of R’n’B music, the performer will be bringing her mesmerising sounds to Australia for the very first time, making her set a Laneway must-see.

 

Dune Rats

Dunerats528x476

Your old mates the Dune Rats go with summer festivals like how coke goes with ice, with tracks from both their first musical offerings to their self-titled debut album that ooze summer vibes. These funny guys’ on-stage shenanigans make their crowds go wild in the best kind of way, check them out at Laneway to understand the hype.

 

Flight Facilities

FlightFacilities528x476v3

Home-grown producers Flight Facilities are always a good time. Having played a handle full of music festivals like Splendour in the Grass and Falls Festival in the past, the duo are masters of the on-stage presence that gets festival crowds vibin’ all night long.

 

Royal Blood

RoyalBlood528x476

Anyone who has a great appreciation for rock music will appreciate the rock and roll duo’s presence on the Laneway bill. The two-piece outfit is a force to be reckoned with, and with their award-nomination worthy album resurrecting rock for head-bangers on both sides of the equator, it’s an impossible fact to argue. It’s already been announced that Royal Blood won’t be playing any sideshows while in the country, cementing their spot as a must-see set.

 

Eves

Eves528x476

This youthful 19-year-old performer has already supported big dogs like fellow Laneway lineup spot holder Courtney Barnett, and also Sky Ferreira. She’s also been named one of triple j’s Next Crop artists of the year. Only on the cusp of her career and she’s already showing signs of maintaining a long one. Her sweet vocals will have you swaying in the sun before you realise you’ve been hypnotised by her sound.

 

Vic Mensa

VicMensa-2-528x476

You know you’ve already heard his song Down On My Luck, you know you loved it, and you know you don’t want to miss it. So why not see it live in action? The deep-house beats that he slides his fresh rhymes over are evidence of his rapidly up-and-coming position in the industry. Plus, how cool would it be to say “I saw Vic Mensa live”. Say his name: Vic Men-SA. It just rolls off the tongue.

 

Jungle

Jungle528x476

If you missed Jungle at Splendour in the Grass earlier this year, never fear! They’re returning to our sunburnt country to exhale their retro-future funky sound into the Laneway atmosphere. Filling the stage with their 7-piece band, there are a lot of elements that concoct the act’s unique sound that you can’t help grooving to when you hear it.

Those are only a few that appear on Laneway Festival’s killer 2015 lineup. See the full list here
