Hamilton News - - NEWS -

What a great way to kick off your con­cert go­ing 2019.

In a very special nod to their 10th An­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, the in­cred­i­ble Florence + The Ma­chine re­turn to Laneway 2019, a decade af­ter per­form­ing on the first Auck­land Laneway in 2010. A very happy birth­day to Laneway in­deed.

To cel­e­brate this epic oc­ca­sion, we’re of­fer­ing a chance to win one of two copies of Florence + The Ma­chine’s new al­bum High As Hope.

It con­tains the sin­gles Sky Full Of Song, Hunger and Big God, and is de­scribed as be­ing as in­ti­mate as it is epic, ven­tur­ing into new sonic ter­ri­tory whilst reach­ing back to Florence’s roots, and, as Florence de­scribes it, “is a pure ex­pres­sion of who I am now, as an artist, and an hon­est one”.

The UK artist has daz­zled fans and crit­ics with three ear­lier cel­e­brated stu­dio al­bums; Lungs (2009), Cer­e­mo­ni­als (2011) and How Big, How Blue, How Beau­ti­ful (2015), which have pro­duced a slew of hits in­clud­ing

You’ve Got The Love, Dog Days Are Over, Shake It Out and Spec­trum (Say My Name), among many oth­ers.

It’s the ideal pre­cur­sor to the Laneway 2019 fes­tiv­i­ties. Along with FATM the stel­lar line-up prom­ises a full day of mu­si­cal dis­cov­ery and ad­ven­ture and in­cludes New Zealand de­buts from fu­ture RNB su­per­star Jorja Smith, beloved heart­string puller Rex Or­ange County, teen sen­sa­tion Bil­lie Eil­ish, hip hop’s bright­est new star Den­zel Curry plus sets from Gang Of Youths, peer­less elec­tronic pioneer Jon Hop­kins, Aus­tralian song­writer roy­alty Court­ney Bar­nett and much, much more. The orig­i­nal bou­tique fes­ti­val is set­ting up to be the high­light of your sum­mer!

With Florence +The Ma­chine’s head­line show at Spark Arena hav­ing sold out in dou­ble quick time Laneway 2019 has just be­come the one of the hottest tick­ets in town. Be in quick!
