The festival will feature three stages of music, with both local and international acts. Other artists announced for the lineup include David Dallas & the Daylight Robbery, The Datsuns, The Phoenix Foundation, Avalanche City, Marlon Williams & The Yarra Benders, Tiny Ruins, P-Money, Racing, The Eastern, Fazerdaze, Arthur Ahbez, and The Chills with more TBA.

"We've picked these artists with excellence in mind. Bands and performers who, no matter their genre, will be able to speak to any member of the audience on some level, just due to their sheer calibre," festival director Paxton Talbot told New Zealand news stuff – Staff Writers
