ATTN: the good folk of Melbourne and Sydney. If Laneway tickets slipped through your grasp on that fateful day last year (the one and only day it took for them to sell out) then you’ve been granted a second chance. From 12pm this Friday, second release tickets will be available from the festival’s website.
The likes of Les Savy Fav, Beach House, Foals, Holy Fuck, !!! (Chk Chk Chk) and Yeasayer have made for a truly exquisite lineup that should adequately satisfy the musical appetite of anybody who has ears.
The winners of Triple J’s unearthed competition have also been announced to add some good old fashioned local appeal to the day:
Brisbane: Inland Sea
Perth: Boom! Bap! Pow!
To avoid consecutive disappointment, sit tight until midday Friday to conserve energy and do not partake in risky ball games that may result in finger injuries, so that a smooth transaction and swift ticket acquisition can be yours.
