Australian Music Festival is Coming to Detroit

March 22, 2013

The St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival is coming to America this year. The festival that once started out as a Melbourne, Australia street party has expanded to a seven- city tour and focuses on independent rock acts.

The announcement came during South By Southwest, a festival in Austin, Texas for all things music, movies, and innovation. The event will come to Detroit, Michigan September 14th 2013 at the Meadow Brook Music Festival in Rochester Hills, a suburb of Detroit.

The festival drew more than 70,000 people to its festival shows in Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore and hopefully that number grows even larger with an added American stop for the festival.  Of Monsters and Men, Alt-J, Bat For Lashes, and Japanadroids are just some of the bands who have played at the Laneway Festival this year.

The lineup for the inaugural American date of the festival will be announced in May followed by ticket sales.  Are you going to travel to Detroit to experience the Laneway Festival? I know I’ll have to make a stop there and check out this once in a lifetime experience.
