The Laneway Festival lineup for 2013 has just been announced and comprises a fantastic mix of returning acts like Bat For Lashes and Yeasayer, and a haul of exciting first-time visitors from various indie offshoots. Powerpop phenoms Japandroids and punk geeks Cloud Nothings represent the high volume guitar contingent; prodigious beat smith Shlomo and local lads Flume and Chet Faker will provide the chill out section; and female vocalists are celebrated with the likes of hyped UK R&B princess Jessie Ware, Ms Mr, LA singer-songwriter Nite Jewel and ambient pop outfit High Highs. The 2013 festival will be the place to discover your Next Favourite Band.
