Laneway 2018 Food Line-Up

Food Glorious Food

Monday, 18 December 2017- St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival New Zealand celebrates its ninth edition in just six weeks time on Auckland Anniversary Day.

Music is an important feature of Laneway, and we know fans are incredibly excited about our line-up, and back at the stunning surrounds of Albert Park precinct for second year. We’re going to be making a few minor tweaks to make things even better on site. The main change is that we’re moving the main food area, plus the craft beer and wine bars onto the grass near the fountain, so you’re on the grass and closer to the shady tree covering when you’re taking a break for something to eat.

You can also keep track of what’s happening on the stages while you relax. Situated above the wine bar this year we have installed a huge video screen that will be bringing you pictures and sound from each of the stages.
Speaking of food, once again we have a line-up of Auckland’s best and most delicious food vendors coming to Laneway. We’re getting hungry just thinking about it.

Allpress Espresso - Che Lucio BBQ - Doornuts - Double Dutch Fries - Fatima’s - Go Pasta - Judge Bao - Langos - Lord of the Fries - Mizzoni Pizza - Nice Blocks - Ramen Takara - Serial Griller - TACO LACO - Tart Bakery - The Brulee Bike - The Rolling Pin - Wise Boys Burgers
And more to be added…
Once again there’ll be bars scattered across the site and heaps of free water stations to keep you hydrated - and a festival isn’t a festival without hot chips, hot dogs and candy floss, so if that’s what you’re after, they’ll be there too. There are gluten free and vegan options aplenty, notably St Kevin’s Arcade vegan faves Tart Bakery and Lord of the Fries.
Tickets are selling fast and music fans are encouraged to book quickly

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940. More>>

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>


Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
