Chris Cudby / Tuesday 28th July, 2020 8:38AM

The organisers of The Others Way 2020 festival have cooked up an absolute doozy of a lineup for the multi-venue extravaganza, taking over Tāmaki Makaurau's central city Karangahape Road district this September. Revealed today by Flying Out, the mega-stacked all-Aotearoa bill features such key musical figures as Pōneke heavy hitters Beastwars, the long-awaited return of Flying Nun sonic travellers The Subliminals, Dean Hapeta's pioneering hip hop collective Upper Hutt Posse, Port Chalmers folk sensation Nadia Reid with full band, an exceedingly rare live appearance by underground Ōtepoti songwriter Maxine Funke, The Phoenix Foundation performing their recently reissued 2010 album Buffalo in full, Christchurch legends The Bats and so much more. Two stages will be dedicated to showcasing the output of rising adventurous local imprints, with Noa Records and Sunreturn Records each presenting especially curated lineups. 2020's festival will also introduce a new all ages precinct on Pitt Street, including Girls Rock Camp stages – tuck into the details below...

UPDATE 4/09/20: The Others Way 2020 is sadly unable to go ahead on 11th September because of Government restrictions on audience numbers due to Covid-19. All ticket-holders will be contacted directly with refund information and an opportunity to contribute to The Others Way, the artists and venues involved.

Press release:

Karangahape Road festival The Others Way announces a line-up that digs deep into the rich vein of pure gold that is New Zealand’s alternative music scene.

The Others Way 2020 includes folk darling Nadia Reid in her only Auckland show with her full band. The Phoenix Foundation take time out from their new music for an exclusive performance of Buffalo, celebrating the reissue of the acclaimed album on the 10th anniversary of its release. The line-up features artists of the moment JessB, Reb Fountain and Finn Andrews, with Beastwars bringing their immense sludge metal sound to the festival, and The Golden Awesome playing a rare live show.

In the Music Royalty category, The Others Way is thrilled to announce an appearance by New Zealand Hip Hop founders Upper Hutt Posse. Flying Nun icons The Bats and their labelmates The Subliminals and Dead Famous People will also play, and power-pop heroes Voom make a welcome return to the festival.

Showcasing artists at all stages of their careers, the line-up once again features exciting emerging talent such as Wellington pop singer RIIKI, Christchurch alt-country hero Ryan Fisherman, rising rappers Diggy Dupé and Gino October, indie super-group GuardianSingles and talented newcomers Same Name Confusion.

This year's label curated stages feature Noa Records, a new label focused on spotlighting alternative music from Pasifika and indigenous Māori musicians, and local Auckland label Sunreturn will also host a stage spotlighting their wonderfully eclectic roster including recent bFM chart-topper - K M T P.
