music news 16/09/2020

Some heartbreaking news coming from Laneway Festival Auckland:

After much deliberation, we are very disappointed to announce that Laneway Festival Auckland will not be taking place this Summer 2021. The current circumstances surrounding border closures and the unpredictability of future Covid-19 outbreaks have created an extremely tough environment for festivals. We take pride in delivering an absolutely premium event year after year but in these conditions we do not believe we can operate to our full capabilities.

Laneway Festival was set to include international artists such as Benee, Charli XCX, The 1975, Mahalia etc.

There are talks of the annual festy being pushed back all the way to 2022.
