Here All The Must-See ActsBy Jasmine Riley | theurbanlist.com Festival season is well and truly upon us, which means Laneway Festival is less than a glitter sneeze away. This year, for their 15th birthday party, they’re throwing one hell of a party at their fresh new digs in Footscray Park. While we may not know the set times just yet, we’ve been hyping up over the line-up they dropped back in September. Laneway generally doesn’t stick to one genre of music, meaning there’s pretty much something for everyone. To make things a bit easier, here are our picks for our favourite acts playing in February. Baker Boy Hip-hop champion Baker Boy, AKA Danzal Baker is an Indigenous rapper from the N.T who rose to fame following his win of the Triple J Unearthed National Indigenous Music Awards Competition back in 2017. His 2018 track Black Magic sews the English language with Yolngu Mata and has become an anthem for the entire Indigenous community. Baker’s live shows are always full of energy, so be sure to catch his Laneway appearance. Camp Cope These gals are the whole package. The Melbourne trio are not only known for their alternative rock sound, but are passionate activists for gender equality within the music industry. Their 2018 album How to Socialise & Make Friends is raw and real and definitely worth getting behind. Cosmo’s Midnight When you get that festival-itis, your feet hurt and you feel you can’t possibly go on, do yourself a favour and catch the Sydney twins set–it will be sure to perk you back up. This year they’ve graced us with another thrilling electronic album titled What Comes Next, which will be perfect for a boogie on the day. Courtney Barnett Who doesn’t love to thrash their head about and scream the lyrics along to our favourite songs? Melbourne-based babe Courtney Barnett is so great at creating music that makes you feel something. Her second album Tell Me How You Really Feel won the 2018 ARIA award for Best Rock Album and is grungy and just too real—see track Crippling Self-Doubt and a General Lack of Confidence (guilty). Gang Of Youths These guys have been riding a pretty successful wave since the release of their second album Go Farther Into Darkness back in 2017. It’s been a couple of years since we’ve seen them at Laneway, and boy have we missed them. Frontman David Le’aupepe is known for his sultry dance moves reminiscent of Michael Hutchence, and the boys put on a show that surely can’t be missed. Jon Hopkins Something a little bit grittier. Jon Hopkins is a producer, songwriter and electronic artist out of the UK. His new album Singularity is his fifth release and takes you on a journey from low to high, making it a completely immersive experience. It’s hard not to feel something when listening to Hopkins music, and his set at Laneway will without a doubt be a standout. Methyl Ethel The Perth band have an indie rock sound that can’t be ignored. Back in September, the boys released their track Scream Whole after a whole year of silence, and it is good. In addition to their new track, their 2017 album Everything Is Forgotten seamlessly fuses infectious poppy beats with melancholic ballads. Be sure to catch these guys. Middle Kids We’ve only known Middle Kids for a couple of years, but they have made quite the impact on us. From their Triple J Unearthed single Edge of Town to the release of their debut album Lost Friends earlier this year, the Sydney band have a distinct indie-rock sound that you can’t help but bop your head along to.
