The National, Sigur Ros, and Deerhunter Lead Laneway Festival’s First Detroit Lineup
As well as Solange, the Dismemberment Plan, Charli XCX, Icona Pop, CHVRCHES, and more
The National, Sigur Rós, Deerhunter, the Dismemberment Plan, and Solange will welcome Australia’s St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival to the U.S. on September 14, when the international showcase makes its North American debut at Meadow Brook Music Festival in Rochester Hills, Michigan. Organizers unveiled the lineup for Laneway’s first-ever stateside installment Monday (May 13), and it’s an impressive slate of artists, particularly for an inaugural event.
The full roster: the National, Sigur Rós, the Dismemberment Plan, Deerhunter, Solange, Savages, Charli XCX, CHVRCHES, Run the Jewels (that’s El-P and Killer Mike’s collaborative project), Phosphorescent, Youth Lagoon, AlunaGeorge, Frightened Rabbit, Washed Out, Flume, Icona Pop, My Brightest Diamond, Haerts, Warpaint, and Chet Faker.
Laneway also holds events in Singapore, New Zealand (Auckland), and Australia (Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth), all within days of each other. This year’s series featured performances from Japandroids, Bat for Lashes, Cloud Nothings, the Men, Real Estate, Jessie Ware, and Divine Fits, among many others.
