St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival 2016 Lineup Announced!

The St Jerome’s Laneway Festival has become one of Australia’s leading alternative music festivals, offering major cities a generous line-up of local and international talent. Organisers recently announced the 2016 program, which features some truly amazing musical talents including Flume, Chvrches, Grimes, Hermitude, Beach House and Thundercat.

Next year, EDM legend Flume will be rocking the festival with his unique blend of futuristic genres. The producer spoke to Triple J about working at the festival in his younger, less famous days. “I actually volunteered at the 2010 Laneway … I was carrying bottles of water between stages and all that,” Flume told triple J. “I walked past The xx [playing on stage]. I kind of stopped; I put the box of water down and watched the whole set. Got in heaps of trouble.”

Other major acts include indie-rock darlings Beach House, bass playing supremo Thundercat, live-wire electronic act Grimes and acclaimed singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. Rapper Vince Staples and Odd Future-related crew The Internet will bring their unique talents to Australian crowds, along with Chvrches, Hudson Mohawke and Hermitude.
