Laneway wins SMH's Metro M Award for Music Festival of the Year
20 December 2011
We're very happy to have won Music Festival of the Year in the Sydney Morning Herald's Metro M Awards. SMH, in their article announcing the nominees and winners, wrote of the festival, 'There was barely a dud act, the atmosphere was terrific and you left feeling you'd got plenty of bang for your buck.'
'There were superb artists on every stage almost all the time and the civilised crowd, it seemed, had come to pay attention to them, rather than see what they could between bar trips. Highlights came via the all-female Warpaint and the alt-funk of !!! but Les Savy Fav were standouts, turning the event into an exhilarating punk-rock happening.'
We're honoured to have taken out the award, and promise an even better festival in 2012. For more on the awards, head over to the SMH site.
