After a three-year long hiatus, Laneway Festival was announced and tickets sold out in a flash. And when we say a flash, we mean a three-hour, never-before-seen sell out that nobody saw coming.
This morning, Laneway Festival have announced that they will be moving next year's festival to Western Springs - and if you missed out on tickets, you will be very pleased to know that more tickets will be going on sale. A new pre-sale starts Wednesday 26 October at 9am and will be available for Laneway subscribers and anyone who missed out and was registered for the original pre-sale. General public tickets go on sale Thursday 27 October at 9am.
“We were blown away with the demand, and after being away for so long it was clear we needed to find a way to allow more of our audience to be able to experience Laneway,” says Julian Carswell, Executive Producer of Laneway Auckland. “We couldn’t let people miss out on the chance to see some of the world’s most exciting artists, many coming to Auckland for the first time.”
Alongside this exciting news is the announcement of a new addition to the lineup - The Jungle Giants. Driven by optimism, creative freedom and their desire to “go funny, go weird and not be scared”, each new album by The Jungle Giants paves the way for their continued metamorphosis. Expecting the unexpected has become the status quo.
If you missed out on tickets, Laneway Festival subscribers will be the first to access the new ticket allocation being released in the pre-sale - sign up here. All Albert Park tickets will still be valid for the new venue.
“The decision to move is bittersweet. Albert Park has been our much-loved home since 2017” says Danny Rogers, Laneway Festival co-founder. “Our team is working hard to ensure we bring the magic of Laneway to the new venue, which will have improved production but still feel uniquely Laneway.”
Tickets available here. We don't think they'll last too long!
