Heads were in hands when it was rumoured last month that the annual St Jerome’s Laneway Festival was going to have to move to Wellington as the organisers struggled to find a suitable location. The good news is – it’s staying. The even better news is – Laneway Festival is heading back to its old home beneath the silos on the waterfront. Expect another lineup of the indie acts you love and indie acts you are-about-to-love-you-just-don’t-know-it-yet-because-they-are-so-FRESH.
“We are beyond happy that our old friends at Silo Park have pulled out the stops to make it possible for Laneway to return to the waterfront location for 2016,” says festival co-promoter Mark Kneebone.
We’re thrilled too. Check back here on September 22 for the first lineup announcement.
