Gig Information

Aotearoa's premiere festival adventurous and avant-garde sonics is back, bringing more than 50 incredible acts of off-kilter experimentation to Auckland for four days and nights of boundary-pushing sonic bombardment.

Over Labour Weekend, artists from as far away as Belgium will converge across the city to engage in radical sound making, sonics on the edge of perception, extreme instrumental techniques, vocal catharsis and all round sensory stimulations!

In addition to utilising Auckland's holy trinity of underground music venues – Audio Foundation, the Wine Cellar and Whammy Bar, this years Nowhere! Festival also takes over the spectacular acoustics of the Silo’s on Auckland waterfront for a day and night of reverb drenched experimentation.

AUDIO OVERLOAD : at the Wine Cellar/Whammy Bar – more than 20 acts over 3 stages running simultaneously : Fri 19 Oct – 8pm - late

Divide and Dissolve (Melbourne) – heavy doom duo from Melbourne
Barbara Paterson – extraordinary solo vocalist performing the Berio Sequenza!
Sewage – explosive, skronking Dunedin duo of drums, saxophone, violin and vocals
Gorge – transcendent noise rock from Palmerston North
Francisca Griffin and the Bus Shelter Boys – Flying Nun legend ex Look Blue Go Purple
Piece War – loose, distortion washed guitars, tuff n’ dreamy vocals, perfect melodies, and smart lyrics
Droszkhi – a psychedelic sound world of elliptical loops, discombobulated techno-rhythms, electric pulses, and cosmic drones
Blue Cheese - electro banshee pop
Strange Stains – built of droning synths and reverb-soaked vocal lines, conjuring a mood which sits somewhere between the soundtrack to an ’80s horror flick and a lullaby
Fistkisser – enigmatic and mysterious Wellingtonian ambient / drone artist
Bib Kids – fresh faced electro-clash ratbags bring the noise in a big way
Oksun Ox – live finger beats, foot thumping, twanging, moaning, hard out riffs, dodgy singing, casio boogaloo, sound fx to the maximus
Ragged Veins – aching, visceral noise at the intersection of abstracted emotion and personal projection
P.wits – the solo project of Benedict Quilter of Independent Woman Records, and central node of Auckland's noise community
I.R.D. – junk noise and found sounds, music made with broken cassette recorders, unplugged mixers and collapsed (or collapsing) drum kits
Bruce Russell & Jeff Henderson – two heavyweights of NZ avantgarde go toe-to-toe
Lost Leader – psychic improv duo gently dismantling and reassembling the universe
Kimmy – solo (sometimes duo) techno-deconstruction
