Laneway Muses Global Expansion
Co-founder Danny Rogers told the Sydney Morning Herald, “There’s been a conversation about going to Glasgow, there’s been a conversation about some Californian Laneway dates, there’s been conversations about some northern-Asian Laneway shows.
“We’re just trying to figure out what we can and can’t do, really. People really seem to have taken to the festival, which is just unreal. It’s a balancing act … To do this all year round, I don’t want to fall out of love with what we do.”
Laneway made its North American debut two years ago in Detroit but has not returned, citing a lack of availability of headliners in 2014.
Rogers also contemplates Laneway as a two-day event, similar to a solution adopted by Soundwave to include all the acts on offer. Rogers said that for the 2015 tours, he had to pass on 150 acts – 120 of which he wanted to book.
Among the first 34 acts announced for Laneway 2015 were Banks, St. Vincent, Future Islands, Chet Faker, and Lykke Li.
