Adelaide festival info
The Laneway Festival party kicks on to Adelaide this Friday. The reviews from Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney so far have been incredible and you shouldn’t miss out.
Hot tip: dress appropriately and stay hydrated. Bring sunscreen, hats and closed-toe shoes. Free water stations will be available on site to fill up your water bottles. Don't forget to bring your wallet (there are limited ATMs on site); and be a legend to your fellow festival mates. And have the best time. We can’t wait.
Prep up with these super sweet GIFs from Laneway artists; Haim, CHVRCHES, Kirin J Callinan, The Jezabels, Kurt Vile, Run The Jewels and Lorde, shot by FasterLouder's Daniel Boud backstage at the Brisbane leg of the festival.
There are limited tix available from here.
