The Laneway Festival 2018 lineup just dropped

The full lineup for Laneway Festival 2018 has been leaked a day ahead of schedule, but with names like these, there’s really nothing to complain about.

Last month, festival organisers confirmed Mac DeMarco and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals as its first two acts for next year and now the full hog has been revealed.

It’s a stellar mixture of homegrown and international acts with BADBADNOTGOOD, Bonobo, ODESZA, The Internet, and Wolf Alice all exclusively appearing at Laneway. Sydney staple Alex Cameron will finally find himself back in the country after some extensive overseas touring and a new album. Seattle producers ODESZA have also just released their third LP and can’t get enough of Oz; they’ll be down under this very week for a headline tour. Crowd favourite Mac DeMarco is back for “another one” as well, after hitting up Laneway in 2015.

As always, Laneway is a festival with it’s finger firmly on the pulse of the industry and next February is looking better than ever.
