Red Bull Music Academy presents Future Classic stage; Pond sideshows + more
The countdown to the 2015 St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival is officially on! Only 13 days until the festival kicks off in Singapore.
Laneway Sydney and Melbourne festival dates will sell out imminently. Tickets to Brisbane, Adelaide and Fremantle events are not far behind and will sell out pre-event. There are no sideshows in these cities, so those shows will be the only way to catch FKA TWIGS, BANKS, FLYING LOTUS, CARIBOU and more this summer.
RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY PRESENTS FUTURE CLASSIC STAGE
Our longstanding partnership with our mates at Red Bull Music Academy and Future Classic continues when they host some of the best electronic and hip hop acts in the world at this year's Laneway Festival. The Red Bull Music Academy presents Future Classic Stage will feature performances from Flying Lotus, Jon Hopkins, Rustie, Seekae, Vic Mensa, Ratking, SOHN, Eves The Behavior, Tkay Maidza, Raury and Mansionair.
We are delighted to announce POND sideshows this February. Led by musical wanderer Nick Allbrook (it’s his sixth Laneway in a row), the band comprises a revolving cast of members taken from Tame Impala, The Growl, The Silents and others. Over their five-year history, the band have released a series of albums (including the raved about Beards Wives & Denim and 2013’s Hobo Rocket) that redefine rock n roll. NME once called them the ‘The Hottest New Band In The World’ and they count as one of our favourites. Their new album Man, It Feels Like Space Again is set to be released on the eve of Laneway, making it the first showcase of their new music. No doubt their set will be as thrillingly explosive and unpredictable as ever.
POND will be supported by fellow Laneway classmate Peter Bibby at the Oxford Art Factory in Sydney and local group The Shabbab at the Corner in Melbourne. Check out their debut self-titled EP via BandCamp for a good dose of Middle East Brunswick garage rock.
