Laneway Festival Artist Announcement

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 recently 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.

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.

So here it is: the awesome list of acts playing at the 2012 Laneway Festival NZ:

Feist, The Horrors, Gotye, Laura Marling, Pajama Club, SBTRKT (Live), Shayne P Carter, Washed Out, Twin Shadow, Anna Calvi, M83, Cults, Girls, EMA, Yuck, Toro Y Moi, Wu Lyf, Glasser, Opossom, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, Austra, Transistors.

This year the Laneway Festival will host three stages as well as boutique pop up restaurants, food and market stalls and art installations by local Auckland artists.
