    The Laneway Festival will make its North American debut this September. It's no longer Down Under!

    The National and Sigur Rós will headline the festival, which was founded in 2004 in Melbourne, Australia, and has since expanded to eight cities.

    The North American version will be held at Meadow Brook Music Festival in Rochester Hills, Michigan on September 14. Other acts on the bill include Solange, Frightened Rabbit, Savages, The Dismemberment Plan, Deerhunter and Chvrches. That's eclectic, and what makes this festival "can't miss" for the locals and anyone with the means and desire to travel.
