With our toes now well and truly dipped into 2015, Laneway Festival is just a few weeks away. Sadly, we found out today international act Lykke Li will no longer be able to make it to any of the dates due to health reasons. “It’s been a long time coming, but unfortunately tour life has caught up with me and it’s been recommended that I take a break. I’m devastated, but know I will return. Thank you for all the support, and I sincerely hope I can make it up to you at a later date.”
The sliver lining of this dreary cloud is that pocket rocket Tkay Maidza will be replacing, most certainly a warm welcome on any summer festival bill. Adelaide’s very own rising star has already had a busy start to the year playing Falls and Southbound Festival, with no signs of slowing down for the rest of 2015.
We highly recommend getting to the Adelaide leg early to catch Sparkspitter. Winning this years Unearthed spot on the bill, these guys play one of the best instrumental sets we have seen in a long time. Their debut LP TECHNÊ is well worth the listen too.
Cool dude Jesse Davidson will also be there. #bunnings
