To celebrate being the official hotel provider of Laneway Festival and help you rest your weary head after a long day of music, food and good vibes, we are giving three people (and their lucky friends) the chance to live the high life with Art Series Hotels. Each winner will receive a double pass to Laneway Festival, and an overnight sleepover in one of Art Series Hotels suites. Kick back or kick on in luxury, before sleeping over in a Deluxe Studio Suite after a big day of sun, drinks, local food, friends and most importantly – great live music. Art Series Hotel Group will help you feel refreshed and ready to continue celebrating summer after a lush sleep. To be in the running, tell us which Laneway act you would kick on with in a hotel room and why.
To get the ideas free flowing, we've put together our top picks of who we would party with.
Made up of Briggs and Trials, the Indigenous Australian hip-hop duo have made waves in their solo careers and have teamed up and released Reclaim Australia (2016). The pair are loud, angry, talented and look like a tonne of fun. Check them performing alongside Australian legend Paul Kelly in the Triple J studio doing one of his biggest hits “Dumb Things”.
Another local band, the all-female garage group hails from Melbourne. Their debut self-titled album was released in 2016 and received praise from Pitchfork to Brooklyn Vegan. The girls sing about current issues, to personify the laid-back, grunge style that is synonymous with Melbourne. Their song “Jet Fuel Doesn’t Melt Steel Beams” is cynical, political and not to mention a lot of fun.
Who hasn’t partnered up or been featured in a Clams Casino track? The New Jersey hip-hop producer burst into the scene in 2011 with his Instrumental Mixtape series, featuring huge heavyweight artists in the game: Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Lil B, FKA Twigs and The Weeknd (to name only a few). Clams Casino’s beats are original, fresh and guaranteed to get you dancing. Get a taste of Clams Casino and listen to track "Illest Alive".
Manchester’s own Floating Points is finally bringing his live show to Australia and New Zealand, exclusive to Laneway. His sound is similar to his friends Four Tet and Jamie XX. Look forward to chilling out and letting his minimal beats take over. One of his first tracks ARP3 personifies England’s house music of the last decade.
It’s look more and more like 2017 will be the year of Tash Sultana. The 21 year old Melbourne native has been making waves on the festival circuit, as well as getting international recognition. Not only can the vivacious musician play ten instruments, but with a voice so pure and beatboxing skills, what’s not to love about Tash Sultana? Check her out in a raw bedroom session of hit Jungle:
Tame Impala’s first Laneway performance was in 2009, and how times have changed for the Perth boys. With sell out shows internationally, and playing at Coachella and Glastonbury, as well as being covered by none other than Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala is a leap away from their humble beginnings. Let’s take it back to the start with one of their first singles Half Full Glass of Wine:
