BLOCK PARTY will be a wild street party held inside Laneway Festival at the Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Fremantle events. The concept is a homage to the very first Laneway parties that were spontaneously held out the back of Melbourne’s Caledonian Lane, circa 2004. This is Laneway Festival going back to basics.
Held at the Brisbane Showgrounds, Bowen Hills.
St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival is about leading new and revered seminal music. The festival has always been interested in finding what’s fresh and bringing it to unique settings and surrounds to be appreciated by music lovers.
The size of the festivals, the locations and the way we encourage community all form part of the way in which the Laneway team strives to present a live music experience like no other.
