Food Glorious Food

Eat with us at Laneway 2018! We love quality food just as much as our music, and this year we’re taking it up a notch with another epic range of culinary delights. Here’s a small glimpse of what we’ve got lined up...


To match the excellent line up of St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, this year, Laneway is excited to announce ‘Royal Moyle’: a collaboration with Australia’s undisputed King of culinary delights, David Moyle.

Founder of Hobart’s famous Franklin restaurant and Creative Director of Melbourne’s hottest new bar Longsong, Moyle will curate food and beverage pairings at the Sydney and Melbourne events. As part of the pairings, Moyle has chosen a selection of current, young and acclaimed chefs, restaurants and mixologists.


Hubert is a French restaurant located in the heart of downtown Sydney. At Hubert we believe that a fine restaurant is as much about the ambience, good conversation and laughter, as it is the quality of the wine and food.



Sincle the closure of Pinbone, Jemma Whiteman and Mike Eggert's have been collaborating in various pop-up ventures (most recently Good Luck Pinbone and Mr Liquor's Dirty Italian Disco) who's emphasis is on fun and interesting food in a relaxed sharing format.



It’s moonshine, music and merriment. Longsong question the status quo - but in a thoughtful way. And at their heart is a collaboration with a score of primary producers, brewers, mixers and makers.



10 William St, younger sibling of the iconic Fratelli Paradiso. Part bistro, part bar a vin. Italian in its origins but relevant in its cooking and vision. A purveyor and pioneer of fine, non-intervention wine. A place with a sense of purpose, beauty and vibe. 




Opening in Sept 2016, Bodega 1904 is 3rd restaurant for the Porteño boys. Located in the new Tramsheds dining precinct in Forest Lodge, Bodega 1904 focus is on local produce prepared with sustainable techniques. The menu is heavily influenced by Ben and Elvis’ love of Latin flavours and head chefs Joel Humphries skill and passion for perfectly finished dishes.



Ghostboy first popped up in a food court in Sydney's Chinatown, serving modern takes on classic Mexican street food. Since the chef and owner Toby Wilson has taken his Asian-influenced, taco-driven cantina on from Haymarket to a stint at Tio's Cerverceria, numerous events and pop-ups and on to it's recent incarnation as Bad Hombres, a vegan Mexican restaurant in Surry Hills, Sydney and Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. Ghostboy diners can expect dishes such as pork carnitas tacos with yellow peach and Thai basil, charred corn with Japanese mayo and furikake and the crowd-pleasing fried cauliflower tacos with cashew cream and vibrant salsa verde.



When Mary’s opened in Newtown in 2013, lines formed, and have barely moved since. Now one of Sydney’s hottest joints, Mary’s is a no-frills experience - a short menu, loud music and plenty of booze. Bringing their brand of rock-n-roll food to Laneway 2017, punters can expect all the swagger and noise from the Newtown haunt, alongside the burgers and fried chicken that started it all.



Kerby Craig—winner of six-consecutive Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide hats as Head Chef at Koi Restaurant in Woolwich and for his fine dining Restaurant UME— found the inspiration for his latest passion-project in the street counter-culture of Tokyo.

In a quest for a burger above all others, he travelled far to taste the possibilities. Time and again he was let down by questionable patties, lifeless buns, and burgers drenched in lacklustre sauces.

Then armed with a deep respect for all things Japanese and a healthy obsession with perfection and quality in food preparation, his epiphany came when he discovered how to capture the essence of Umami—what the Japanese call the fifth taste sensation, seldom experienced in the western world.

The result is the UME Burger, a taste experience quite unlike any other. Finally someone has given the burger the respect it deserves.



An old Sydney favorite serving healthy, reliable and tasty vegetarian food, including the the wildly popular ginger dumplings. Yullis, as the menu is designed is a place for sharing and enjoying time spent with friends enjoying the huge selection of beer and wine including Yullis Brews range of locally brewed beer.



Original, mild, hot, and HOT HOT. El’s is based around American style fried chicken from Nashville where they thrive on hot chicken. Their model is based around the era of hip hop, including a travelling projector which plays black and white old school hip hop movies so you sit back eat some fried chicken and watch a film/documentary. Enjoy!
