Melbourne Laneway Review

Yesterday, the indie crowd of Melbourne congregated at Footscray Community Arts Center for one of Australia’s favourite music festivals, Laneway. Having relocated this year to allow for stages that the crowd can actually see, and boasting a lineup that read like a who’s who of ‘it’ bands, this was certainly a festival to savour.
