St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival originated as a series of small music shows throughout Melbourne, and has since grown to one of Australia’s best music festivals. The show had very humble beginnings: renting out an old meatball shop, cramming people into tiny spaces, and unknowingly booking some of the biggest breakout bands to hit the music scene.
Within a year, St. Jerome’s had emerged as a real festival, bringing the likes of The Avalanches, Claire Bowditch, and Lily Allen to the stage. Festival organizers have always been privy to up-and-coming artists, and make a point to always bring the newest acts and freshest music.
From its beginnings in 2005 to now, St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival continues to give crowds exactly what they want: good music and a better time.

How to Prepare
Be prepared to party rain or shine—the festival stops for nothing.
Wear closed-toed shoes to protect your feet from mud, rocks, and the occasional predatory heel.
Carry the following essentials in your bag: poncho, handkerchief, and extra phone charger.
Remember that everything is paid in cash, so stock up before you arrive.
Finally, get a good night’s rest because you’ll need it for the 12+ hour day.
