Bookending one of the most turbulent times for live music in Aotearoa in living memory, the hard-working team behind Pōneke's Newtown Festival have revealed the wheels are in motion for the follow up to this year's multi-stage extravaganza, which took place on 8th March just before we all went into lockdown. Singer and producer Estère is the first headliner announced for the jam-packed free community event, set to take over the streets and alleyways of Newtown on Sunday 7th March 2021, featuring 12 stages and 420 stalls [nice]. The Tui nominated artist is performing with band on the South Stage, which is supported by RadioActive, Coffee Supreme and Massey’s Te Rewa o Puanga, School of Music & Creative Media Production. There's sure to be lots more exciting names revealed for the traditionally sun-soaked affair in the weeks ahead, save the date in your digital diary...

Press release:

Newtown Festival welcomes singer and producer Estère to lead its 2021 bill on Sunday 7 March 2021. Self-described as “electric blue witch hop”, the illustrious and idiosyncratic Estère with all-star band will grace our South Stage, which is kindly supported by RadioActive, Coffee Supreme and Massey’s Te Rewa o Puanga, School of Music & Creative Media Production.

We had a stellar 2020 Newtown Festival just before the first Covid-19 lockdowns. We feel very fortunate to be able to plan for our 2021 event, as well as be able to announce the inimitable Estère as the first headline act. The Wellington-raised local ushers in a time where we are thinking more and more about the resilience of our creative communities and how we can refocus to celebrate, even more, artistry near and dear to us.
