St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival  
Originally known as the Laneway, this festival started in Melbourne, Australia in 2004. Known as an indie music event (all indie music lovers, take note!), this festival has garnered a substantial amount of fans throughout the decade. It is one of the must-go music festival in Australia and even debuted in Detroit, United States this year in September. The US featured line-ups like The National and Sigur Ros – two notable bands that all indie music lovers would recognize.
The Laneway Festival expanded to Singapore in 2011, debuting at the historic Fort Canning Park. It is clear that this event is supported by the islanders as it has been faithfully held the following year as well.
