Folks, it feels like Laneway Festival 2017 just rolled by, and yet we’re already talking about the lineup for 2018. Life is an inexorable march towards a final destination none of us can quite comprehend, and we hurtle ever onwards.

We’re pleased to announce that PEDESTRIAN.TV are an official media partner of Laneway in 2018, and honestly we couldn’t imagine a better team-up.

And here’s the tasty bit. Our good friends have deigned to divulge that ever-essential venue and pre-sale info – as well as the first two acts to join the lineup. And it’s a pretty tasty drop: your first onstage pals are none other than Mac DeMarco and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals.

Happy Monday! Your First Two Laneway Festival 2018 Acts Have Been Announced

Don’t take our word for it though. In case you’re somehow skeptical that we’re telling the truth, here’s Mac himself confirming that it’s all goin’ down:
