Ria Hall (Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Ranginui) headlines with her signature style of roots, reggae and reo.

Prolific beatmaker and turntablist, DJ Spell’s (Ngāti Porou, Tainui) live set will deliver west coast-inspired hip hop, with some of the best Māori MC’s joining him on stage. Enjoy Māori/ Samoan neo soul singer LaCoco (Ngāti Kahu, Ngā Ruahine, Papa Sataua), whose sound is rooted in gospel, RnB and jazz.
