Laneway Festival 2016 is coming to Silo Park

Sep 7, 2015 Music

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.

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
