Rochester Hills, Michigan -- One of Australia's most beloved music festival tours, St. Jerome's Laneway Festival, has moved stateside and will debut outside of Detroit this Saturday September 14. We wrote about Laneway when it last expanded, that time into Asia with a Singapore installment early last year, and couldn't be more excited that the indie-artist-fostering event has exploded from the Melbourne alleyways of its origin.

You have your ticket, you know the lineup, and you've printed the schedule. How further to prepare, you ask? Stream our comprehensive playlist to Laneway's US debut - from ADULT. to Youth Lagoon.

As the festival's lineup is organized on their site, we chose to compile our playlist alphabetically. Two songs per artist are featured, save for a few exceptions. Haerts, by far one of the most buzzed about bands after SXSW this year, only have one track up on Spotify. Run the Jewels, the collaboration of El-P and Killer Mike, is yet to hit the streamable platform so we included a track of each artist instead - just imagine them mashed up. Lastly, the intriguingly named Detroit Party Marching Band was no where to be found, and thus not included in the playlist. Besides that - here's 47 tracks to soundtrack your pregame.
