Laneway Festival is psyched to share the news that triple j will be heading to Port Adelaide to broadcast the first event of the Australian leg of the festival. On Friday 2nd of February, listeners will be able to hear exclusive live sets and interviews from a line-up that includes Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals, Mac DeMarco, Odesza, Wolf Alice, Billie Eilish, Amy Shark and much more.
triple j Content Director Ollie Wards says: “We love bringing the best live music to triple j listeners wherever they are in Australia. There’s no better way to do that than plug straight into the main stage at Laneway and take people to the front row in Adelaide.”
triple j Breakfast presenters and hometown heroes Ben & Liam will host the Adelaide event as the official festival MCs, following in the footsteps of 2017’s formidable hosts A.B. Original.
Ben and Liam had this to say about the call up: “Hailing from Adelaide, the home of the Hilltop Hoods, it’s always been a dream of ours to be bad ass emcees and play a huge home town show… Although we won’t necessarily be rapping. We’ll just be telling ya to put sunscreen on and that. We’re still amped!”
triple j’s ‘Life in the fast Laneway’ competition opens today, head here for more details.
