Newtown Festival 2023 Lineup Announced

Newtown Festival 2023 Lineup Announced

Chris Cudby / Thursday 22nd December, 2022 9:09AM

Pōneke's free multi-stage festival and street fair Newtown Festival is making a mighty return on Sunday 5th March 2023, happily back in action following a year off due to pandemic curveballs. The organisers have announced today the straight up stonking, massive music performance programme for the must-attend annual event — featuring over 130 acts (we honestly lost count) from all across the motu who'll be bringing the party at the traditionally sun-soaked, family friendly extravaganza. Explore the full lineup and look forward to even more announcements to come in the new year...

"It’s been too long without a Newtown Festival but we’re back baby! Shout out to the programmers who do exquisite work, the wider team for the unglamorous jobs that need to be done, the arts community for simply being, and a big mihi to the many many fantastic artists bringing their creativity and energy to Newtown."
