Laneway Festival’s 2014 line-up has arrived

Laneway Festival can always be counted on to deliver a first-rate bill and sure enough, St Jerome’s 2014 edition is looking good. Laneway have just announced the cast of names it will be bringing around the country this summer and, we’re pleased to report, the line-up includes a very impressive dance contingent.

Leading the charge is Four Tet, the production demigod back for a proper spin of the country after popping over for Meredith and a Metro Theatre show last year. Moody Brits Mount Kimbie are also locked in, ready to show off their excellent new album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth for the first time in Australia, while The xx don and star in his own right Jamie xx is coming out too.

It goes on: we can also look forward to the likes of Norwegian beatmaker Cashmere Cat, teenage wunderkinds XXYYXX and King Krule, Los Angeles four-piece Warpaint and Future Classic guns Jagwar Ma, with the bill rounded out by big names like Danny Brown, Lorde and Earl Sweatshirt. Take in the full thing below.

For its eleventh year, the Australian leg of the Laneway tour kicks off in Brisbane on January 31 before moving onto Melbourne, Sydney and new venues in both Adelaide and Perth. “We’re exceptionally proud of this year’s line-up,” Laneway Director Danny Roger announced. “As usual, the artists have been chosen on the strength of their music and their ability to deliver an insanely great live show. It’s why we couldn’t resist bringing a few international acts back and it’s why we are so thrilled to introduce you to some of the most exciting new artists this side of the world has seen for the very first time.”
