L.A.B will be joined for this show by another of New Zealand’s fastest-rising acts, Mako Road. Set to release their debut album in late-2020, their laid-back indie-rock sounds has seen them amass over 20 million streams. Following on from two sold-out shows at Auckland’s Powerstation this November, Mako Road will bring their sun-soaked sounds to this show.

New Zealand’s undisputed queen of hip-hop, soul & R&B, Ladi6 also joins the bill, bringing her live set up including a full band alongside dancers The Sixxes. With a constantly-evolving catalogue which marks an artist only comfortable when taking risks, Ladi6 will be adding her collection of classics alongside her acclaimed live performance to this show. 

Fresh off the release of her latest album Manawa Wera, Ria Hall will be bringing her stunning live show to this lineup. Inspired by classic reggae & soul records of the 1970’s such as Third World & Jimmy Cliff, Manawa Wera presents a classic reggae sound in a modern Aotearoa context. Hall will bring this sound to life with a full band, perfectly complimenting her stunning voice. 

Kicking things off will be Mount Maunganui’s The Leers, a four-piece exploring the depths of indie rock & roll. Set to release new material in late-2020, their style of swelling build-ups, catchy guitar pop melody, dynamically engaging structure and head bobbing riffs will be the perfect way to start this show.
