Hottest 100 Party
Voting for triple j’s annual Hottest 100 is underway and this year the Brissy leg of Laneway falls on the day of the countdown (January 26). So we’re throwing a party inside the festival and inviting our mates!
Hosted by local legends Patience Hodgson (The Grates) and comedian/writer Mel Buttle, the Laneway Festival’s Hottest 100 Backyard Party will be held within the grounds of the festival at Brisbane Showgrounds. Come chill with Laneway grads Violent Soho, DZ Deathrays and acts on the line-up as they sign vinyl, chat to the hosts and help us count down the best songs of 2016 from start to finish.
There will be a live stream, shade, cocktails by the Bowery, BBQ served up by the folks at Crafted Q and heaps of vibe. With Laneway artists like D.D Dumbo, Glass Animals, Camp Cope, Julia Jacklin, Tash Sultana and Nick Murphy bound to make an appearance in the countdown (and fans set to shake things up with a campaign for A.B Original’s protest song ‘January 26’), what a better way to celebrate the world’s biggest musical democracy than at Laneway Festival in Brisbane. Come hang with us!
