St. Jerome's Laneway Festival Line-Up Announced

The Laneway Festival is hugely excited to reveal the artists of the 2016 edition. From pioneering artists at the top of their game to the acts we’re tipping to break through in the year ahead - Laneway Festival has got the goods.

The 2016 line-up is a heady mix of left-field electronica, shambolic punk, intelligent pop and boundary-pushing hip-hop. The New Zealand contingent is particularly exciting including some brand new first-time-you’ll-see-them-live acts and the reformation of a legendary Flying Nun band.

Travelling across three countries and seven cities to perform at some of the best live music settings around, the following artists will hit Singapore, Auckland, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth this January/February.

The New Zealand line-up:

Baynk - Battles - Beach House - CHVRCHES - DIIV - East India Youth - FIDLAR - Flume - GoldLink - Grimes - Groeni - Health - Hermitude - High Dependency Unit - Hudson Mohawke - Leisure - Lontalius - METZ - Nadia Reid - Oscar Key Sung - Purity Ring - QT - REIN - Scuba Diva - Shamir - Silicon - Sophie - The All Seeing Hand - The Internet - Thundercat - Tobias Jesso Jr. - Vince Staples - Violent Soho
