Laneway Festival Melbourne 2019 credit Daniel Boud 019



Laneway Festival returned in 2019 as one of the most respected and popular events on the Australian music calendar. Our fifteenth edition saw the announcement of a new venue for Melbourne Laneway, now taking place at the lush Footscray Park. The move marked an exciting new chapter for Melbourne Laneway, which started in a Lonsdale St alleyway and came of age at Footscray Community Arts Centre.

This year’s line-up once again showcased the best rising local and international talent. R&B queen Jorja Smith made her Australian debut alongside Clairo, Denzel Curry and Rex Orange County. It was the twenty-year-old English crooner ROC who ignited crowd-singalongs across every leg of the festival with his lovelorn sentiments and dreamy tunes. Off the back of their record-breaking tour, Gang of Youths closed out the festival in Fremantle with a very special performance marking the last show of their album cycle.

We also teamed up with Girls Rock! to empower the next generation of women and gender-diverse musicians. The inaugural Girls Rock! collab featured a unique lineup, which saw artists like Alex Lahey, Alex the Astronaut, Courtney Barnett, Georgia Maq (Camp Cope) and Middle Kids take to the stage. The line-up differed across each Australian festival date and also featured a stack of local favourites and Girls Rock! affiliated bands — a true highlight of 2019.
