Laneway Festival Auckland Postponed Until Summer 2022

Laneway Festival Auckland Postponed Until Summer 2022

Chris Cudby / Wednesday 16th September, 2020 3:14PM

The news Aotearoa festival lovers have been silently dreading was confirmed today, as Tāmaki Makaurau's fun-in-the-sun, always absolutely stacked St. Jerome's Laneway Festival will sadly not be returning to the leafy surrounds of Albert Park in 2021, due to (you guessed it) Covid-19. There is a silver lining though, in that the organisers have promised Laneway will be back in summer 2022. Always a highlight of the festival calendar, we'll be counting the days until Laneway's return — revisit our team's comprehensive review and photo gallery of Laneway 2020 and read the full statement here...

"After much deliberation, we are very disappointed to announce that Laneway Festival Auckland will not be taking place in Summer 2021. The current circumstances surrounding border closures and the unpredictability of future Covid-19 outbreaks have created an extremely tough environment for festivals. We take pride in delivering an absolutely premium event year after year but in these conditions we do not believe we can operate to our full capabilities. We have decided that it would be best to take a year off so that we're in a strong position to come back bigger and better than ever. Sending our love and support to all our loyal crew and suppliers who we hope to see again, along with all the punters, in summer 2022."
