TEG announces partnership with Laneway Festival

TEG announces partnership with Laneway Festival
June 3, 2021

Live entertainment and ticketing firm, TEG, has announced its partnership with Laneway Festival - one of Australia and New Zealand’s most beloved touring festivals. Laneway Festival founders Jerome Borazio and Danny Rogers will remain as substantial owners and continue to run the festival and the business as co-Managing Directors, in partnership with TEG.

Laneway Festival is a boutique indie music festival that has evolved from a Melbourne street party in 2005 into a highly respected national touring festival. Laneway delivers 85 hours of contemporary live music to over 100,000 music enthusiasts annually and, along the journey, has developed an impeccable track-record of hosting breakthrough artists such as Billie Eilish, Lorde, Haim, Denzel Curry, Run The Jewels, Tame Impala and Flume.

TEG Chief Executive Geoff Jones said he was thrilled to welcome Laneway to the TEG family and advised “we have enormous respect for Laneway, which has grown from a Melbourne street party into a world-class festival and with a strong touring arm, consistently breaking new local and international artists to the youth market in the region.

“Laneway will continue to operate as it always has, with founders Jerome and Danny and their team working closely with TEG Live Managing Director Tim McGregor as they continue to innovate and plan for the 2022 Laneway Festival. Watch this space!”

Borazio and Rogers added “firstly, we would like to thank everyone who has helped to make Laneway what it is today. The festival started in a tiny alley in Melbourne in 2005 and has grown to become an institution in Australia, NZ and Singapore, thanks to the hard work and passion of some of the most genuine and talented music lovers in the country.  We are endlessly thankful for and humbled by their contribution.

“To the fans and artists: we are super determined to get Laneway Festival back on the circuit ASAP, delivering you the amazing line-ups and experiences that you’ve grown accustomed to.

“And, of course, we want to thank Michael Chugg and his incredible teams, past and present. The festival would not exist today without his, and their vision, passion and support.

“Finally, to the current team working on the festival: thank you for your ongoing patience throughout this challenging period for our industry.  With our new partnership with TEG we’ll be able to navigate these next few years knowing we have a team who shares the festival’s long-term vision.”
