BREAKING – The Laneway competition 2018 lineup has just been leaked


The entire lineup for next year’s Laneway Festival has been revealed early, as a result of a big gaffe by the festival’s media partner Pedestrian, which briefly revealed the lineup on its page this morning before quickly taking it down, Music Feeds reports.

Previously revealed acts Mac DeMarco and Anderson .Paak The Free Nationals are indeed on the Laneway Festival 2018 bill, and will be joined by names like Father John Misty, Bonobo, The Internet, The War On Drugs, TOKiMONSTA, Wolf Alice and BADBADNOTGOOD.

About Laneway
In the context of traffic control, a lane is part of a roadway (carriageway) that is designated for use by a single line of vehicles, to control and guide drivers and reduce traffic conflicts. Most public roads (highways) have at least two lanes, one for traffic in each direction, separated by lane markings. On multilane roadways and busier two-lane roads, lanes are designated with road surface markings. Major highways often have two multi-lane roadways separated by a median.
Some roads and bridges that carry very low volumes of traffic are less than 15 feet (4.6 m) wide, and are only a single lane wide. Vehicles travelling in opposite directions must slow or stop to pass each other. In rural areas, these are often called country lanes. In urban areas, alleys are often only one lane wide. Urban and suburban one lane roads are often designated for one-way traffic.

With the lineup originally due to be announced tomorrow morning (September 12), it’s now all out in the open, and the festival has officially announced the lineup itself and dropped its announcement video below.

Laneway Festival 2018 will hit Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Fremantle in February next year, and you can check out the full lineup and ticketing details below, with a Visa presale starting on Wednesday the 13th, and general sale next Monday the 18th.

The 2017 Laneway Festival was a huge success, despite rapper Young Thug being pushed from the lineup at the last minute to be replaced (in a manner of speaking) by Dune Rats.

The festival also partnered with Melbourne band Camp Cope and their ItTakesOne initiative to help to minimise the harm caused by assaults and abuse at gigs, by setting up a 1800 LANEWAY emergency support line for anybody who has encountered violence of any kind at the festival.
