Lontalius, High Beams and Miss June are among the New Zealand contingent for next year’s St Jerome’s Laneways Festival.
Fittingly, for the 10th anniversary of the indie extravaganza, the headliner for the festival will be Florence + The Machine, who performed at the very first Laneways in 2010.
The homegrown line-up includes the now L.A.-based Lontalius, punk quartet Miss June – who are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album – indie popsters Bene and Imugi, and local hip hop supergroup High Beams.
In addition, there will be a rare live performance from the Dead C (below), the legendary Kiwi noise merchants who have released almost 30 albums since their formation at the end of the 80s.
As well as Florence + The Machine, the international contingent includes Courtney Barnett, teen sensation Billie Eilish, quirky US outfit Parquet Courts and rising British R&B star Jorja Smith.
The full line-up is: A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Bene, Courtney Barnett, Camp Cope, Clairo, Cosmo’s Midnight, The Dead C, Denzel Curry, DJDS, Billie Eilish, Florence + The Machine, G Flip, Gang Of Youths, High Beams, Jon Hopkins, Imugi, Ravyn Lenae, Lontalius, Masego, Miss June, Mitski, Parquet Courts, Rex Orange County, Skegss, Smino, Jorja Smith, Yellow Days.
Presales begin on September 20, before going on public sale on September 25.
