Laneway Presents Julia Jacklin to play one show in Auckland in December

Thursday, October 13

‘Truly exceptional’ – Q Magazine, 4****

'Don’t Let the Kids Win feels very much like one of those albums that will slowly creep into the affections of a large number of people; it’s that lovely.' – The Guardian 4/5

‘A sturdy, touching arrival’ – Uncut 8/10

‘Her voice cool as winter and sultry as summer, as intrinsically sad as her songs' emotional punch’ – Mojo, 4****

‘Her brilliant debut album captures a talent in its first, thrilling bloom’ 
– The Sunday Times UK

‘Jacklin approaches the art of the song with a few essential tools: a subtly played electric guitar, a breathtakingly precise voice… and an innate skill at channelling emotion through sparse, loaded lyrics.’ – LA Times


On the heels of the release of her smoking hot debut record Don’t Let The Kids Win, Laneway Festival is pleased to announce that Julia Jacklin will be heading to New Zealand for a show at Golden Dawn on December 8, ahead of her appearance at Laneway Festival 2017.

Don’t Let The Kids Win has been drawing the attention of tastemakers around the globe in the best possible way, and while she’s Australian, her ‘made in Lyttelton’ album and support dates with Kiwi fave Marlon Williams mean we feel like she’s a part of the family.

Julia + band are currently in the middle of a huge global tour that includes performances at some of the world’s major festivals including the UK’s End Of The Road and Electric Picnic. She’s also sharing stages with buzz acts, Marlon Williams and Whitney, plus playing headline shows in London, Dublin, Berlin, Rotterdam, NYC and LA just to name a few. 2016 has already seen Julia acquire praise from performances at SXSW and The Great Escape, which projected her onto the world stage and lead to international record deals with Liberation, Transgressive and Polyvinyl Records.
