Here we go: the official Laneway Music and Arts Festival 2018 sideshows are here to bless your ears with musical goodness.

Coming in hot to you are 16-year-old L.A. pop sensation Billie Eilish, UK/Icelandic three piece Dream Wife (on their first trip to Australia, no less), London hip-hop god Loyle Carner, Laneway alumn Mac DeMarcoSlowdive with their first new album in over two decades, unapologetically political London five-piece Shame, and festival faves The Internet with a mix of band and solo material.

Father John Misty has also just announced a slew of extra shows; given his Splendour sideshows sold-out in no time, you’ll want to jump on those tickets, stat.

Start planning your January / February 2018 around these dates below, and mark Thursday 26 October @ 10am AEST down in your calendar to get tix.

(Heads up: there’s an exclusive pre-sale on Father John Misty tix on Wednesday 25 October @ 8am AEST; head to secretsounds.com for more info.)
