Laneway Festival announces 2023 dates!

Laneway Festival announces 2023 dates!

After a nearly three year hiatus, Laneway is back! The beloved six-city Trans-Tasman festival will return to its beloved home in Auckland’s iconic Albert Park on Monday 30 January for the first time since 2020.
The home of Laneway since 2017, Albert Park has become an integral part of the festival’s appeal. The open green spaces, weaving concrete paths, towering exotic trees, and decadent features all conjure the feeling of summer, housing the best music festival Auckland has to offer. Combined with beverages in the sun, time out under the trees in the shade and the best music line-up Aotearoa has to offer, the much loved park will come alive again in 2023 on Auckland’s Anniversary Day.
“We are so happy to be returning to our spiritual home, Albert Park, it’s the perfect outdoor setting for live music and Laneway,”
says Julian Carswell, Executive Producer, Laneway Auckland.

Over the ditch for the Australian Laneway shows, the Melbourne leg of the festival is moving from its home in Footscray (due to redevelopment) to a new home at The Park, Flemington; South Australians will be treated to a new site at Bonython Park; the Sydney event will be held in at the Sydney Showground for the first time. In a significant move, Perth’s Laneway Festival will take place in the city’s CBD in the recently revamped Wellington Square, while the Brisbane event returns, like Auckland, to its long-term home (why mess with the best?).
“The Laneway Festival team are absolutely pumped to host music fans and our favourite ever line-up back in Albert Park this January,”
says Danny Rogers, Laneway Festival co-founder.
The line-up will be announced in just two days, at 9:50am NZST on Wednesday 21 September.
