PRESS RELEASE:

95bFM, Groove Guide & Under The Radar present:
ST JEROMES LANEWAY FESTIVAL
MONDAY 31 JANUARY 2011 – AUCKLAND

Since its inception in 2004 in Melbourne, Australia, the Laneway Festival has become synonymous, as they say, with hot summer days, awesome locations and diverse, forward-thinking line-ups filled to overflowing with vital, surprising bands. Favouring talent over mainstream success, Laneway has consistently brought compelling, boundary-pushing acts to discerning punters and next year's event will continue that tradition.

In 2011, New Zealanders will experience their second Laneway Festival in the newly revamped AOTEA SQUARE, beside the Auckland Town Hall. The square itself is perfect for Laneway, with room to fit stalls, stages and audience comfortably, and more space and atmosphere than ever. Punters will have access to two different stages, enough amenities to cater for those wanting to wander between the stages or stay in front of their favourite all day, plus local arts showcases and delicious cuisine.

And now, to the line-up. The most important, exciting acts of this year and next. Behold:

YEASAYER - FOALS - LADYHAWKE - !!! (CHK CHK CHK) - DEERHUNTER -
BLONDE REDHEAD - CHILDREN’S HOUR - WARPAINT - BEACH HOUSE -
ARIEL PINK’S HAUNTED GRAFITTI - LAWRENCE ARABIA -
HOLY FUCK - AN EMERALD CITY

TICKETS ON SALE 9AM, WEDNESDAY 20 OCTOBER, FROM WWW.LANEWAYFESTIVAL.CO.NZ and www.the-edge.co.nz or 0800-BUY-TICKETS

This is awesome! The most progressive lineup I've seen for any event in this country for a long time.
I just hope the sort out the organisational problems from last year, it ruined it for me; surely there's a better venue?!

No Jenny & Johnny, Local Natives, Two Door Cinema Club, The Antlers, Menomena and Les Savy Fav. Seems like we're missing an entire lineup! Hopefully they'll be able to persuade some of them to come in our second announcement.

I can't believe the numbers of artists not coming here, but doing the australian shows. Good bands coming here, most of which we've seen before. Feeling a bit second class...
