Much-loved Laneway Festival alumni, the flamboyant Mac DeMarco, returns to Australia for his biggest headline shows yet.
Known for his killer live performances and on-stage antics, you can bet that Mac is going to be in fine form when he lands in the country for Laneway and sideshows.
He’s released three LPs and 2 EPs in just over half a decade, and shows no signs of slowing down. With This Old Dog, his third album and first full-length since 2014’s celebrated release Salad Days, Mac has produced an album that Clash called “Intimate and endearingly honest… Mac DeMarco’s most essential chapter of slacker gospel yet” in their 9/10 review.
It’s a reflective, hazy synth-based collection of down-tempo cuts showcasing singles ‘One More Love Song’, ‘On The Level’ and ‘This Old Dog’, which were all featured as Pitchfork’s Best New Track.
With the provocative Kirin J Callinan confirmed as a special guest, an evening of world-class entertainment will ensue when Mac lands in Sydney and Melbourne in 2018.

“He ended the show in typical Mac fashion, crowd surfing through the tiny venue until the audience ferried him to the bar, where he ordered a beer and crowd surfed back to the stage.” – The Line Of Best Fit
“Mac DeMarco is funny as hell and was born for the spotlight” – Consequence of Sound
