Detroit's Laneway Festival cancelled

6/17/2014

The Laneway Festival in Detroit, Michigan has been cancelled after organisers failed to secure suitable acts. The event, which focuses on new rock music, began in Australia in 2004 and expanded to the U.S. city last year (13). However, the Detroit festival will not go ahead in 2014 because of a lack of available acts. Festival founder Danny Rogers says, "We tried to get the very few acts that we felt would be appropriate for Laneway and none of them were available. "We had one that went all the way to the wire and then changed its mind at the very last minute - bless their beautiful heart too, they were under so much pressure to be everywhere and anywhere and something had to give. We decided that we needed to be honest with ourselves and sit it out this year and review it again next year."
