The St Jerome's Laneway Festival returns for its fifth year in January 2015 featuring a star-studded line-up, taking most of its bulk from the Australian one, with eccentric songstress St Vincent and indie's well-kept treasure Little Dragon among the top picks. Plus, there's American sweetheart BANKS, British post-punk five piece Eagulls, psychedelic rock band POND, American synthpop outfit Future Islands, rising Australian dead-pan artist Courtney Barnett, Canadian indie rocker Mac DeMarco (and Agnes, his mum), Mercury-nominated FKA Twigs, bass-heavy rock duo Royal Blood, Scottish noisemaker Rustie and funk-soul music makers Jungle to look out for.
And don't forget Australian folk act Angus and Julia Stone, as well as up-and-coming electronic producer Chet Faker, making the discrening difference between the line-ups, playing at Gardens by the Bay exclusively for the Singapore leg. And flying the flag high for South-East Asia are local acts angle-voiced .gif and folk band Hanging Up The Moon, as well as experimental electronica duo Pastel Lite and space-influenced Enterprise from Malaysia. Can't wait!
