The Friday night’s concert lineup features Festival returnees Hopetoun Brown. You’ll recognise Tim Stewart and Nick Atkinson as the brasssection of the legendary band Supergroove. These guys played support or 2016’s Dave Dobbyn festival-concert and totally won the hearts of the sell-out crowd with their infectious and funky performance. Think Louis Armstrong meets Tom Waits and James Brown and you’re almost there. It’ll be a foot-stomping good time! They’ll be joined in the lineup by the wonderful musical mash-up which is the Carnivorous Plant Society. CPS use a multitude of instruments to create an intriguing and psychedelic blend of mariachi, spaghetti western and sci-fi flavours. Together with mind-bending visual projections expect roof-raisinginterplay between these dazzling acts who are also long-time friends and collaborators. With support from one of Auckland’s most seasoned selectors, DJ Dubhead.
