Gig Information

It is with great excitement that we can finally announce the amazing line up for the ST JEROME’S LANEWAY FESTIVAL, which takes place on Monday 30th January 2012 (Auckland Anniversary Day) in Auckland City, New Zealand.

Now in its third year, the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival is one of the most unique musical events in New Zealand. This summer the festival is located at one of Auckland City’s newest sites, the newly revamped SILO PARK, Wynyard Quarter, Beaumont Street. The newly developed Auckland Waterfront with spectacular views to the Harbour Bridge and the towering restored silos will provide the backdrop for 2012’s coolest indie line-up.

Over the last three years, the LANEWAY FESTIVAL NZ has hosted many brilliant musical acts including Echo and the Bunnymen, Daniel Johnston, The 3Ds, Foals, Yeasayer, The Dirty Three, Deerhunter, Beach House, Blonde Redhead & Childrens Hour. Other unknown acts that have gone on to have major international success shortly after the festival is announced: Florence + The Machine, The XX, Cut Off Your Hands, Ariel Pink & Warpaint. It’s an impressive record, one we’re determined to uphold.

Once again these ground-breaking, genre-bending musicians – some of which will be your recent discoveries and others soon-to-be your new favourites, will play this one day festival. And one thing unites them all: they are spine-tinglingly amazing live.
