Then, straight out of left field, Laneway then added the ever-eccentric Atlanta emcee Young Thug for his debut (and exclusive) Australian shows, as well as D.D Dumbo. But they aren’t done yet, with one more Australian act to add to the lineup, and it’s none other than King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.
Having also been recently added to the Coachella 2017 lineup, King Gizz will be joining the crew to keep the ball rolling in thunderous fashion. Their work rate is pretty astounding: They’ve released eight albums since 2010 and plan to drop another five this year – on top of their cheekily titled Gizz Fest – so they’re going to have plenty of content to unleash on the Laneway stages.
