The biggie on everyones must-do list is St Jeromes Laneway Festival that had already found leaks in the form of electronic dojo Hudson Mohawke and etheral crooners Purity Ring of which were the literal tip of the iceberg when it came to their all encompassing 2016 lineup.
In a sort of, we can book whoever we want impulse organisers have looked back and forth not only chasing down soon to be global powers that they do so well but some of their favourites from years past as well as stand along headliners with Flume, Goldlink, Grimes, Hermitude, Beach House and more all getting the nod.
They are joined by a contingent of local and international synthesists including Banoffee, DIIV, Health, PC Music’s QT, Battles and plenty more.
As usual pen the run of February dates in your dairy and snap up your tickets when they go on-sale September 30th through the Laneway site.
