Laneway Festival 2012 line-up

Image for Laneway Festival 2012 line-up

The 2012 St Jerome’s Laneway Festival line-up has finally arrived and it comes loaded with plenty of distinguished acts. In the tradition of Laneway’s past, the festival has created a bill made up of bands we have never seen, bands we are dying to see again and one or two bands you may not have heard of. On the danceable front, the festival will herald the SBTRKT live show, expansive Frenchman M83 and his band, plus plenty of dreamy, shoegaze-y fare.

As the Laneway spiel goes: “The 2012 Australian event returns to the five venues that have established Laneway as one of the most unique events in the country. The banks of Melbourne’s Maribyrong river, the historic sandstone buildings of Sydney’s College of the Arts, the tree-lined laneways just minutes from the Brisbane CBD, the lush grounds of the Perth Cultural Centre, and a new, expanded site at University of SA will provide the backdrop for 2012’s most exciting indie line-up.”

i really like the lineup but why the hell are tickets $145? this festival shouldnt sell tickets above a hundred bucks i mean you pay that much to see tiesto and armin... not for SBTRKT, M83, Girls etc.
But i do have a case of FOMO and will probably go regardless

The ticket price is too high for what it is. Better acts at Parklife for the same price. But I guess you can charge whatever you want if you sell enough tickets to the hipsters every year.

im no fag hipster but come on man. M83 alone playing for 10 hours would be better than the gash that was produced at parklife.

lineup is pretty sweet, pity the location (in melb) is turd and you have to be consumed by wankers all day
