  Laneway Festival (Brisbane)

The Laneway Festival is about leading new and revered seminal music. The festival has always been interested in finding what's fresh and great and bringing it to unique settings and surrounds to be appreciated by music lovers. The size of the festivals, the locations and the way we encourage community all form part of the way in which the Laneway team strive to present an urban music experience like no other. St. Jerome's Laneway Festival began in 2004 when Jerome Borazio and Danny Rogers decided that summers in Melbourne would be far better with more live music in unique settings. In a true example of actions speaking louder than words, they started to put great bands into St. Jerome's Bar (RIP) in Melbourne's Calendonian lane. First came the St. Jerome's Summer Series each Sunday afternoon featuring 'new' bands of the time like The Presets and Architecture In Helsinki; next it extended to include a monthly Saturday night called Brains (which was actually a residency for The Avalanches, who turned the little bar inside out). Still not satisfied that they were doing enough, one night Danny and Jerome convinced The Avalanches that they could close the lane, remove the bins and throw a proper laneway party. The Avalanches' mate Monkey quickly made up a poster, they asked a few friends to play and so began the annual St. Jerome's Laneway Festival. Fourteen hundred people attended the first laneway festival. It was packed, smelly and full to the brim with great local music, and the vibe was awesome, utterly awesome...

"Laneway in 2013 is inching closer to becoming the perfect event." - The Vine

"Widely regarded as the festival for discerning music fans" - The Age

Fresh from delivering a wildly successful debut event in Detroit, the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival is excited to present the 2014 Australian line¬up, arguably the most eclectic and compelling to date.

Over its eleven year history, the now eight-¬city boutique event has carved out a niche in the hectic festival market, gaining both international acclaim and respect as well as an unrivalled rep for programming the new talent you’ll be falling for over the summer.

Programming director and co-¬founder Danny Rogers says: ‘We’re exceptionally proud of this year’s line¬up. As usual, the artists have been chosen on the strength of their music and their ability to deliver an insanely great live show. It’s why we couldn’t resist bringing a few international acts back and it’s why we are so thrilled to introduce you to some of the most exciting new artists this side of the world has seen for the very first time. This country has so many incredibly talented artists; if only we could bring them all along.’

As previously announced, the 2014 event will introduce a bunch of new changes and improvements to all of the sites. Quality food, unmatched locations, and an impressive exhibition of local art: it’s going to be unreal.
