After 10 years at its previous Rozelle home, the Sydney edition of Laneway Festival is officially on the move in 2020, and it’s huge news for those of you who are big fans of getting to a place with carefree ease.
Festival organisers today revealed the 2020 iteration of Laneway in Sydney will take place at the fabled Domain in the heart of the Sydney CBD; a significant venue upgrade being made just in time for Laneway’s 15th birthday celebrations.
Domain, as you’re no doubt aware, is easily accessible via multitudes of transport – including train, bus, ferry, bike, car, and piloting the old foot falcon – and is being championed by organisers for the site’s “spacious layout and beautiful surrounds.”
For the past 10 years the festival has set up residence at the Sydney College of the Arts and surrounding Callan Park in Rozelle, but organisers stated the move back to the CBD will allow Laneway to “present the show with the best possible staging, sound and overall accessibility.”
“We’ve had 10 amazing years at the Sydney College of the Arts and Callan Park and we’ll forever be grateful for the support of the local community who gave the festival a Sydney home. We decided that it was time to move back into the city so we could present the show with the best possible staging, sound and overall accessibility both in and around the event. We have plans to create a unique offering in The Domain that hasn’t been seen before. We can’t wait to present Laneway in this stunning world class location.”
Further details regarding the 2020 Laneway Festival, including lineup and festival layout at the Domain, is set to be revealed over the coming weeks.Image: Getty Images / Louise Wilson
