Are you ready for St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival 2017?
Laneway returns to Singapore this 2017, for the seventh year running, with 30 eclectic gigs, awesome food and even more awesome vibes! Known for featuring what is new and fresh, a myriad of show options will provide fuel for 14 hours of fun at this Melbourne-originated indie music festival.
Singapore will be the first stop of the seven-city, three-country 2017 Laneway Festival circuit – and the show at The Meadow, Gardens by the Bay is set to be bigger and better than ever. Featuring a stacked indie music line-up, some artistes and bands who are already familiar and others who are rising stars that will eventually make it big. Electronic, hip-hop, R&B, dance, future soul, pop-folk, punk… you name it, they have it all.
One of the biggest names in Singapore’s history of shoegazing, ASTREAL is performing at Laneway Festival Singapore 2017. Known for its shoegaze post rock and ambient rock sounds, the band has played at Zoukout, Lime Sonic Bang, Baybeats and clubs in the region and is famous for its contentious gigs. The band has released 2 albums since its inception in 1992. Despite a three-year hiatus, the group continues to rouse the crowd. The release of its third album around end 2016 or early January will also be in time for Laneway, giving us the privilege to hear the new tracks live.
There will also be acts from Japan for the very first time in Laneway — Wednesday Campanella and KOHH.
WEDNESDAY CAMPANELLA, or Suiyōbi no Campanella, is a trio consisting of Komuai, Kenmochi Hidefumi and Dir.F. Their popularity has soared within the last 4 years, with their enigmatic cocktail of house, techno and chill out music that covers unexpected subjects like guided bus tours, vampires and Hokkaido food. Wednesday Campanella has performed live at various music festivals like Summer Sonic 2015, Rising Sun Rock Festival 2015, Arabaki Rock Fest.15 and SXSW 2016.
KOHH has produced many mixtapes over the past few years and in 2014, he released his debut full-length, Monochrome. He finally got the attention he deserves when his guesting on It G Ma, the YouTube viral smash by Korea’s Keith Ape, left a mighty huge impression on viewers in 2015. Ever since then, he layered on the buzz with 2 albums, a mixtape and a truckload of videos. KOHH’s Dirtrelease, a combination of rock influences and defiant positivity brewing in dark, hard undertones, popped at number 2 on the indies chart and nabbed the top spot on iTunes’ hip-hop chart just 30 quick minutes of its launch. Japan has never been known for its hip-hop scene, but we think that is about to change.
Tickets are on sale now at SISTIC at $185. What are you waiting for? Save the date on 21 January and treat your ears to some exceptionally good indie music!
