Laneway Melbourne is moving in 2019

Moving around the corner from its beloved home for the past nine years, Laneway Festival Melbourne will be held at Footscray Park, Footscray in 2019.

The new site retains all the elements that we loved about our original Footscray Community Arts Centre home - the stunning city views, the local community, the Maribyrnong River - but allows for a more flexible, convenient placement of stages and amenities. A short walk from Footscray station, the beautiful, green, heritage-listed site features bountiful garden beds, ponds and trees for shade: in other words, it’s the ultimate location for a summer festival.

The move to Footscray Park marks an exciting new chapter for the Melbourne Laneway Festival, which started in a Lonsdale Street alleyway fifteen years ago and came of age at the Footscray Community Arts Centre site. To accommodate the ever-evolving vision for the festival, we've worked closely with the Maribyrnong Council to secure the new and improved home. It's really important to us that we stay in Footscray and we can't wait to unleash the full potential of this beautiful park.

Just wait 'til you see Footscray Park in full flight!

All dates, venues and the full-line up for the fifteenth edition of Laneway will be revealed soon.
