Not all music festivals are created equal with the insane mess of Fyre Festival the low point and indie cool St. Jerome's Laneway Festival the high point of the festival circuit. This indie fest has delivered a killer line-up every year since it launched in Caledonian Lane in Melbourne back in 2005.

And 2018 is set to be another stellar year with a slew of talent lined up to deliver the soundtrack to summer covering all music genres from the gothic-folk sounds of Aldous Harding to Dr Dre protégé Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals to the futuristic jazz/hip-hop beats of BADBADNOTGOOD.

The full line-up in alphabetical order (no favourite playing here) is:

Aldous Harding - Alex Cameron - Amy Shark - Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals - BADBADNOTGOOD - Billie Eilish - Bonobo - Cable Ties - City Calm Down - Dream Wife - Father John Misty - KLLO* - Loyle Carner - Mac DeMarco - Miss Blanks - Moses Sumney - ODESZA - Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever - (Sandy) Alex G - Shame - Slowdive - Sylvan Esso - The Babe Rainbow* - The Internet - The War on Drugs - TOKiMONSTA - Wolf Alice
