St Jerome’s Laneway Festival has finalized its lineup for 2023 with Haim, Pheobe Bridgers, Fontaine DC, 100 Gecs, Slowthai, Chaos In The CBD, Mallrat, Harvey Sutherland and more.
A day after announcing that the Adelaide leg of the 2023 St Jerome’s Laneway Festival would be returning from Port Adelaide to the CBD, the event has dropped its lineup for next year.
At his new home at Tulya Wardli Bonython Park, Laneway will be joined by sister band HAIM, RnB ballad singer Joji and indie-pop darling Phoebe Bridgers (along with, we hope, her SA-born bassist and magazine friend Emily Retsas) as headliners perform. .
The rest of the bill is filled by international acts FINNEAS, Fontaines DC, Fred Again, Girl in Red, Slowthai, Turnstile, 100 Gecs, Chaos in the CBD, Knucks, Ross von Friends, The Beths, Yard Act and The Backseat Lovers.
They are joined by Australian artists in the lineup: Mallrat, Adam Newling, Harvey Sutherland, Jacoténe, jamesjamesjames, Logic1000, Sycco, Tasman Keith and The Lazy Eyes.
CityMag asked Laneway management about the likelihood of next year’s event, a la Girls Rock! Adelaide stage of previous years but in response a spokesman for the festival referred us to the 2023 lineup as stated above and told us to ‘wait for more exciting updates’.
In 2014, the Adelaide iteration of St Jerome’s Laneway Festival left its historic home, the City West campus of the University of South Australia, for cool waterfront Port Adelaide.
Returning to the city now for 2023, a spokesman for Laneway Management says CityMag The move to Tulya Wardli Bonython Park will increase the event’s capacity and allow “all attendees to see more of the artists they love”.
“The new Bonython Park location will allow South Australians to enjoy spacious green spaces, plenty of shade and access from the CBD – it’s the perfect place to celebrate with your favorite bands this summer,” says the spokesperson.
“We are very excited to bring so many exciting ideas and our best laneway cast yet to Adelaide.”
The Adelaide leg of St Jerome’s Laneway Festival takes place on Friday 10th February. Visit the website for pre-sale registration and more details.
