Laneway Festival - 2018

2018

Woah goodness me, have you even seen this Laneway lineup? It's immense: Billie Eilish. Mac DeMarco. The Internet. Amy Shark. Heeps more. 

Good news? Here's some - the lineup's about to get even bigger, because we're putting one act off Unearthed on the bill in every state the festy travels to.

Here's how you get in the running, playa: 

  1. Upload your best songs to triplejunearthed.com by December 17
  2. That's it

We'll pick a winner after that. And you'll high five your bandmates/your mum maybe when we call you and say you won. 

If your songs are listed as 'pending' on Unearthed when the competition closes, he's some cool advice we made up: #bless, don't #stress. We listen to everything before we make a decision, so it's chill and fair for everyone.

Good luck! Official Laneway webbo over this way.

Laneway Festival - 2017

2017

The 2017 Laneway Festival lineup is stacked with legends as far as the eye can see: Nick Murphy, Tame Impala, Tash Sultana, Gang Of Youths, Camp Cope, heaps.

But here at Unearthed, we reckon that that lineup is not quite full enough just yet. We're looking for ONE artist to join the Laneway bill in each city it travels to. That means that if you're from WA, SA, NSW/ACT, VIC, or QLD, and you've got your best tunes up on Unearthed, you're in with a shot to play at your nearest Laneway Festival.

To be in the running, just make sure your Artist Profile is up-to-date with your best tracks by Dec 11 - that's when the comp closes. If your tracks are still 'Pending' on the site at that time, don't even stress your brain out pal. We'll listen to errrrthing before we make a decision. 

OK, love you, good luck!
