Thousands of young Australians flocked to Adelaide’s Laneway Festival and reveled in “revealing” summer fashion, with tank tops, bikini tops, shorts and open midriffs the dominant themes of the day.
The mercury soared to 29C at Bonython Park in the city center on Friday and the crowd of young people, full of smiles and full of friendship, were treated to an incredible line-up of musical talent that included Stormzy and Dominic Fike.
Cheyanne Howard, Nevaeh Luke and Piper Monfries captured the theme of the day, with the happy ladies decked out in bikinis and shorts paired with sneakers and boots.

Friday was a hot day in Adelaide, but nowhere near the levels of the Sydney Laneway outing, which saw temperatures reach 30 degrees in Olympic Park.

In addition to keeping things cool, the fans looked splendid as elegant accessories.
Laneway now moves to Melbourne on Saturday before concluding in Perth on Sunday.
