It’s almost 2017 and you know what that means… It’s almost time for St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival.
Back in ’05 a coupla mates had a genius idea to throw a small music fest in a laneway in Melbourne’s CBD. The punters loved it and for the decade and a bit since, Laneway has enjoyed yuge success for its choice mix of local and international talent.
It’s back again nek year, going down in seven cities across three countries (inc. Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisvegas, Fremantle, Auckland, Singapore & Sydney), between Jan 21st and Feb 5th.
Jerome and the rest of the crew behind the jamboree threw a Laneway taste tester last night on the rooftop St. Jerome’s – The Hotel where guests were treated to frosé, Belle’s Hot Chicken and Fonda, all of which will be avail on-ground at the festival.
We had a chat with Olympian Bballer Liz Cambage (whose name I spelt ‘Elizabeth Cabbage’ in this snapstory, classic), music ledge Myf Warhurst, DJ Benson and Saint Jerome himself to find out what the punters are most excited to hear at Laneway this summer:
