St Jerome’s Laneway Festival 2017 has officially announced its lineup, and it is tremendous.
Hip-hop reigns supreme this year, with the best that Australia has to offer in the mighty A. B. Original, who are also the official MCs, Koi Child, Baro and Sampa the Great. They’ll be joined by the amazingly talented Mick Jenkins and super-producer Clams Casino in what’s set to be a beat-and-bar-heavy Laneway 2017.
Tame Impala lead the charge for massive Australian names, along with Nick Murphy (formerly Chet Faker), Jagwar Ma, Nicholas Allbrook, Camp Cope, Ecca Vandal and Julia Jacklin among others.
The big international guests are just as impressive, including Glass Animals, NAO, Floating Points (who’s doing a live set) and Mr Carmack.
This is one hell of a lineup. Like, seriously. Nick Murphy, Tame Impala and Floating Points are performing exclusively at Laneway with no sideshows, by the way, so be sure to grab those tickets ASAP.
