Laneway Festival announces huge food and craft beer menus for each leg of the tour

It’s only right that one of the first touring Australian festivals to really nail the trend of good festival food take it to the next level in 2016, right? Today, Laneway Festival has revealed that in addition to the delicious shapes and sounds that’ll be thrown down by the likes of Grimes, Chvrches, Vince Staples, Flume, The Smith Street Band, and Purity Ring, each city will be getting a carefully curated culinary lineup pulling on the most delicious food vendors each city has to offer. All this will be in addition to a lineup of craft beers, and market stalls including a vinyl store.

Handling the lineup of craft beers will be Byron Bay champs Stone & Wood, who will be tagging along on every stop of the tour; on the East Coast stops, they’ll be serving up brews right alongside Sydney locals Young Henrys. Brisbane will also add the excellent Newstead Brewing Co. while Otherside pump up the beer offerings in Freemantle. Melbourne will add Temple Brewery and West City Brewing.
