Anderson .Paak and Mac DeMarco are returning to Australia

Laneway's first acts have been revealed. 

Back for its fourteenth installment, Laneway Festival has lifted the lid off their first acts for 2018 - bringing indie kingpin Mac Demarco alongside Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals to Australia for next year's bill. 
 
It's no secret Australian audiences are head over heels for DeMarco, with the internationally lauded goofball selling out shows here on the regular.
 
His latest album, This Old Dog, is a noted step forward for the artist - marrying his knack for pop hooks with a newfound maturity within his songwriting. 
 
Meanwhile, Anderson .Paak will be taking to the stage joined by his full band for a special performance that'll most likely feature some new tunes considering how prolific he is.
 
Breaking out via lauded appearances on Dr. Dre's Compton, the LA-based producer and songwriter has garnered an impressive following for his genre-bending mix of '60s funk, '70s soul, R&B and electronica. 

Laneway Festival takes place at Footscray Community Arts Centre and the River's Edge on Saturday February 3.
