It'll soon be time to hit the Knee's Up and join the Soiree, as the hugely popular The Single Fin Mingle festival makes its return to the beachside surrounds of Christchurch's Sumner this coming April. With a bustling programme including a film gala, art shows, surfing displays and prestigious competition, the organisers have revealed not one but two musical extravaganzas to warm your cockles and get you shaking your stuff into the evening.

Friday night sees the The Single Fin Mingle Sumner Soiree take over Matuku Takotako: Sumner Community Centre's courtyard with the psych-pop sounds of Auckland's Joe Ghatt and the dreamy catchiness of Christchurch's There's A Tuesday. Sumner Village Mall will be host to the festival's pinnacle event on Saturday, the annual Village Knees Up in The Mingle Buzz zone, starring Auckland neo-soul groovers Molly and The Chromatics, Christchurch tunesmith Jack Page and band, and rising indie-pop sensation Jed Parsons, whose fab new album BRUNCH launched just last week. Both events are traditionally sold out affairs and punters are encouraged to dress to impress, so don't be shy — dig out your best / most outrageous outfit from the back of the closet and nab tickets while you can...

Press release:

The Single Fin Mingle is an annual multi-faceted festival that celebrates traditional longboarding and the joyous culture that surrounds it. Through our prestigious competition, Film Gala, Art Shows and Musical Soirees, The Mingle is a way of building human connection through having a marvellous time.

Welcome to The Single Fin Mingle Sumner Soiree presented by Jameson. Sophisticated, soulful and sexy this will be a night to remember. Held on Friday the 9th of April, in the beautiful courtyard of Matuku Takotako, the home to one of the most revered Mingle parties of years gone by, we are ready to rewrite history.

The Village Knees up is the pinnacle event of The Single Fin Mingle and one of the most anticipated concerts for hundreds of good time enthusiasts every year. Even before the first band steps a stage, the open air arena, that is erected once a year for this special night, will have attendees beaming in The Mingle Buzz.

Food and beverages available. R18.
