Here's what we know about Laneway Festival 2017 in Singapore so far

As always, quintessential indie music playground Laneway Festival will be returning in 2017. 

And matching up to their roll-out last year, they have already confirmed the date for their seventh outing, marking January 21st next year as the day of festivities at Gardens by the Bay.

The best part? In two weeks time, the line-up will officially be revealed on September 14th, and if they can match up to this year's gloriously eclectic affair — which boasted Beach House, Flume, Grimes and Thundercat — we say that's already a big win for us. 

While we'll also follow our annual tradition of predicting the line-up very soon (which, frankly, is both a highlight and bane of the job), we already know that there's a good chance British singer-songwriter NAO will be performing on the official line-up — although whether she'll appear on our shores is a different question altogether.

“I think that I’ve been asked to do Laneway Festival in Australia, and that is really exciting for me,” said the neo-soul artist in an interview with The BRAG. “My band and I never thought we’d get this far, to be touring or have the opportunity to come out to Australia, and I’ve just got to find the money, but I think we’ll be coming out in January.” 

Along with that, the official page for Laneway Festival Singapore has periodically been posting updates about several Laneway alumni, along with names who've never made an appearance at a Laneway Festival iteration before.

And seeing as how they have new albums either released or in the works — garage rock duo White Lung, celebrated folk group Fleet Foxes, and effin' Frank Ocean, for starters — we think the festival's dropping a few hints that may or may not lead to something.

Read our report of this year's terrific edition, "no re-entry" fears be damned.
