Triple threat – a huge festival is coming to launch The Valley’s newest laneway
Anyone who frequents Fortitude Valley (or just generally has their finger on the pulse of cool stuff) would know that the laneways are where it’s at. The beloved Bakery and Winn Lanes have long been go-to locations to scout the best of Brisbane – from food to fashion, these hotspots are loaded with local gems worth your attention. The Valley is about to welcome a brand-new laneway into its fold, and the powers that be have decided to celebrate by throwing one hell of a party. The Hidden Lanes Festival is taking over town for one day only on Saturday October 13, uniting the three locations to showcase our city’s secret charms.
The Hidden Lanes Festival is pretty much a huge celebration of everything that its landmark laneways stand for – indie ethos, community spirit and damn good times. The festival not only marks the official launch of newbie California Lane, but also allows for patrons to rediscover the magic of Bakery and Winn Lane favourites. Think of this as your ultimate sampler of everything on offer in the collective lanes – the day will provide a curated range of discovery trails across music, food and wine, heritage, fashion, and art.
So what can you expect to see and do at The Hidden Lanes Festival? With more than 80 tenants spread across the three lanes, you can imagine that there is going to be a seriously diverse mix happening. The first live music announcement has dropped, revealing that The Delta Riggs, Astro Travellers, Ben & Anouk Ely and Future Haunts are amongst the acts that will be appearing on the day. You can catch a fashion parade with some of the lanes’ hottest labels – think The Culprit Club and Lil J’s Vintage, Phoebe Paradise, Akira and more. We’ve also got the scoop that Little Valley Lane will be joining in the celebrations with live DJs and bands all through the night.
This is just a taster of what to expect at The Hidden Lanes Festival – to keep up to date with updates, be sure to follow the official Facebook event.
