We’ve all been there—waiting forever in a long queue for food while energy levels are low after hours of jumping and grooving to our favorite artists at a music festival. Last year’s Laneway was particularly tougher than other years, what with the endless showers and strong winds (still a great experience nonetheless). This year, there’s a new option of getting food delivered to you instead, all thanks to a partnership with Uber and Uber Eats.
It’s the first time in Asia that Uber Eats is offering such a convenience at a music festival. Just like ordering food from home, all you need to do is log on to the app, choose from one of the many strategically located collection points on the festival grounds as your delivery address and then pick your food from various food vendors available at the Uber Eats Food Village. It’s so ridiculously fuss-free that you won’t have to leave your favorite artist’s set early just to make sure you don’t have to queue too long and suffer from gastric or pass out before you get to front of the line.
This year, you can expect to dig into grub from the likes of 14 vendors, including Ah Tan Wings, Burger Joint New York, De Tai Roast, Frost Popsicles, Hyde & Co., Root Sellers, Senor Taco, Sidecare Handcrafted, Tanamera Coffee & Crack, The 1925 Brewing Co., The Cultured People, Udders Ice Cream, Pita Tree Kebabs and Satay Power.
Laneway’s partnership with Uber also means all festival goers can enjoy $5 off when you grab an Uber to the festival by applying the code “LANEWAY18” and keying in “Meadow Carpark” as your destination.
