The Female Collective On The Music Acts They Can't Wait To Catch At Laneway Festival 2017

This year's edition of Laneway on Saturday, Jan 21 will host the coolest indie acts from around the world. We speak to five members of the Female Collective - food stylist Bella Koh, florist Aude Giraud, model/events whiz Nadia Rahmat, DJ Amanda Keisha Ang (who's playing at the festival too!) and designer/DJ Linda Hao - to share the sets they're looking forward to catch.


Floating Points

Floating Points

“(English electronic musician) Floating Points, who’s a really good beat maker; Wednesday Campanella, an interesting Japanese act that’s really cute; (homegrown act) Astreal, because I can’t wait to hear their new material; and (local singer) Sam Rui, whom I haven’t seen live. I like her tone and quality – maybe we can work together in future.” Amanda Keisha Ang 



Clams Casino

“I’m really looking forward to (American hip-hop producer) Clams Casino. He’s one of the acts I discovered when I was starting to get into indie music. He only plays instrumental tunes and refrains from (adding vocals), and I really like his cool collaborations, especially with A$AP Rocky. Nadia Rahmat


Glass Animals

Glass Animals

“I have been a fan of (UK experimental pop group) Glass Animals since their debut, so when I heard that they were playing at Laneway this year, I was so psyched.” Linda Hao






“(Homegrown indie rockers) Astreal. I love the fact that they represent local music and I can’t wait to listen to their latest album, which I heard features songs that have feel-good vibes.” Bella Koh 




“I’ve listened to Aurora’s music before and I’m really excited to hear her music at Laneway. Her songs have the ability to stir up emotions – she’s a great storyteller, and I especially love her track “Running With The Wolves”. Another act I love is Attagirl. I also regard (its co-founder DJ Amanda Keisha Ang) as a storyteller because of her (creative) use of visual effects.” Aude Giraud
