Press Release:

LANEWAY FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES 6 MORE ARTISTS TO LINEUP

Over the next 5 weeks, St Jerome’s Laneway Festival will announce six more acts to their already super-exciting artist line-up.

Each Monday at 9am, a new artist will be announced. A tease you suggest? We like keeping your anticipation, and at this time of year, you could compare the process to the opening a Christmas Advent calendar. And keeping with tradition, the new Laneway artists are all exciting - some new / some more established. In total there are 5 more International artists and one local to be announced –and all fantastic live.

First out of the bag – or behind the cardboard flap if it was a Christmas advent calendar – KINGS OF CONVENIENCE.

Kings Of Convenience are a folk duo from Bergen, Norway. Their music is known for their delicate tunes, calming voices, and intricate and subtle guitar melodies. It will be the first time Erland Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe have performed in NZ.

There is no word yet whether Erland Øye will perform any tracks from his side electronic project ‘The Whitest Boy Alive’ but we will let you know as soon as we hear anything.

King of Convenience will join the following artists in the spectacular setting of Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter on Monday 28th January (Auckland Anniversary Day):

Bat for Lashes, Bailterspace, Yeasayer, Of Monsters And Men, Alt-J, Nicolas Jaar, Divine Fits, The Phoenix Foundation, Lawrence Arabia, Jessie Ware, Phelps and Munro, Japandroids, Street Chant, The Men , Cloud Nothings, Deer Park & Beach Pigs

Real Estate said via their Facebook that they're coming to the NZ Laneway too. So you guys should announce TWO bands when you 'reveal' Real Estate :)
