An annual festival that takes place each January, St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival is a treat that no music fan would want to miss. It’s one of the biggest “indie” music events in the country, focusing on qualitative independent music, instead of typical pop and mainstream performers and bands. If you are interested in spending a day outside, listening to new and amazing music, instead of the popular “hits” you hear on the radio every day – St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival has got you covered.
Called Laneway for short, this festival began in 2005 in Melbourne, Australia, in Caledonian Lane. Today it’s performed not only across multiple cities in Australia and in Singapore, but also Auckland, New Zealand, and Detroit, United States, making it festival with a well-deserved worldwide fame and status.
Previous headliners in Singapore include performers such as Two Door Cinema Club, Foals, Grimes, Chvrches, Haim and many others. The festival typically continues for full 12 hours and takes place on two separate stages.
All that goodness, combined with the great F&B (Food and Beverages) around the festival, make St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival a pure joy – last year saw culinary masterpieces from The Fabulous Baker Boy, Melt Bar, Common Man Coffee Roasters, and a lot of others.
This year, Laneway tool place on 21 January, 2017 and included gems from performers such as A/K/A Sounds (Attagirl!), Astreal, Claims Casino, KOHH, Gang of Youths, Jagwar Ma, Nao, Nick Murphy (Chet Faker), Sampa the Great, Tash Sultana, T-Rex, Sam Rui, Tourist, Wednesday Campanella, Whitney, Tycho, Stars and Rabbit, Portrait Art (Weelikeme & Kidg), King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Mick Jenkins, Aurora, Bob Moses and a lot of others.
