Laneway Festival: Sigur Ros, The National, Deerhunter

FIRST U.S. VERSION OF ST. JEROME'S LANEWAY
FESTIVAL FEATURES GLOBE-SPANNING LINEUP

After starting Australia back in 2004, the promoters of the Laneway Festival have gained a reputation for putting together exciting indie-centric lineups at interesting locales for their events. The Laneway Festival now takes place in eight cities spread out among four countries, including the U.S. as Laneway will make its American debut on September 14.

Sigur Ros and The National have been tapped to headline the first-ever U.S. version of the Laneway Festival. The event will take place at the Meadow Brook Music Festival in Rochester Hills, MI near Detroit. Organizers will build two main stages and a side stage, while the amphitheater stage will serve as the event's fourth stage.
