"Laneway in 2013 is inching closer to becoming the perfect event." - The Vine
"Widely regarded as the festival for discerning music fans" -  The Age
Fresh from delivering a wildly successful debut event in Detroit, the St Jerome's Laneway Festival is excited to present the 2014 Australian lineup, arguably the most eclectic and compelling to date.
Over its eleven year history, the now eight-city boutique event has carved out a niche in the hectic festival market, gaining both international acclaim and respect as well as an unrivalled rep for programming the new talent you'll be falling for over the summer.
Programming director and co-founder Danny Rogers says: 'We're exceptionally proud of this year's lineup. As usual, the artists have been chosen on the strength of their music and their ability to deliver an insanely great live show. It's why we couldn't resist bringing a few international acts back and it's why we are so thrilled to introduce you to some of the most exciting new artists this side of the world has seen for the very first time. This country has so many incredibly talented artists if only we could bring them all along.'
As previously announced, the 2014 event will introduce a bunch of new changes and improvements to all of the sites. Quality food, unmatched locations, and an impressive exhibition of local art: it's going to be unreal.
