The annual Auckland Laneway Festival – once again in the pleasant surroundings of central Albert Park – is on this Monday January 28th (Auckland Anniversary Day).

As with all such festivals – think the Big Day Out, Womad, Auckland City Limits, Sunsplash etc – it is often the little-known acts who can provide the most excitement. (Last year Moses Sumney wiped the floor with most at Laneway)
