Laneway 25 year old audience is looking for the best tunes in the world. Laneway 50 year old audience has 25 years of discovering them. What a special mix of people.
99.9% of the Laneway audience is there for the music. Its a fantastic combination of these age groups plus above and below birth dates. They are caring, creative, attentive and interesting. Laneway is a Festival for grown ups.
Unfortunately .01% of the audience is attracted to the crowd. They target events to simply be there and cause a nuisance. Don't let this bozo element affect your judgement.
I am sure that more will be done by all event organisers in future to be vigilant toward this rogue element.
