Laneway Festival announces Singapore debut

After years of planning and in response to demand in the region, St Jerome's Laneway Festival makes its Asian debut this summer in Singapore on Saturday January 29.  Featuring some of the most hotly anticipated acts from the Australian and New Zealand legs, plus Laneway alumni and Australia's most successful music export of the past few years The Temper Trap, the inaugural event is set to be one of the most anticipated festivals to hit the region.

Co-founder/promoter Danny Rogers said: "The team at Laneway is absolutely honored to have the opportunity to launch our event into Singapore. We've been working on this for ages and we're over the moon that everything  lined up for 2011. We can't wait to host Laneway at the stunning Fort Canning Park, easily one of the the best, most unique locations in the city.'

With an overwhelming response to the events line up in Australia and NZ recently, the Singapore Laneway Festival is expected to be met with the same level of anticipation.
