SwampFest21 Announced For October

Annabel Kean / Monday 4th October, 2021 11:32AM

The swamp gods have smiled upon us for another year of October festivities at SwampFest 2021, featuring four nights of all ages Te Papaioea musical goodness. Held between top notch Palmy venues 409 and The Stomach, and presented by the Creative Sounds Society, SwampFest promises two weekends of uniquely curated, senses-spanning experiences. The team of researchintospeed and Drxian are covering the visual treats at Venue 409's October 15th and 16th shows, with plans to envelope the space with large scale projections, complementing each line up — one night of rock'n'roll courtesy of Soda Boyz and Swamp Witch, and one night of hardware synths and modular set-ups feat. Sports Dreams, Meri, Doxa and Venus Vulture. The party migrates to The Stomach for the following weekend for two evenings of Live, Loud and All-Local, including sets from Polaroids of Polarbears and shannengeorgriapetersen. Every event will be in compliance with Level 2 restrictions, meaning attendees will be seated, spaced out and masked up. Take in the full run down of SwampFest programming below, and snap up some cheap as chips tickets before they all go...
