Chris Cudby / Thursday 15th June, 2023 11:29AM

Happening across Matariki weekend from 13th to 15th July, New Plymouth / Ngāmotu's multi-venue NIGHTLIGHT Festival have announced a dynamite new addition to the already jam-packed bill. Aotearoa hip-hop icon JessB will be headlining a Saturday night party before the concluding Lights Out Ball — joined by chart-topping rappers Church & AP and South African-born / Tāmaki Makaurau-based rising star Jujulipps. There's also been a lineup reshuffle, with DARTZ now playing alongside Alien Weaponry and Earth Tongue, as previously announced headliner slowthai will no longer be performing. Scope out the updated festival details and celebrate Matariki in Taranaki this winter...

Press release:

And in the blink of an eye, we have arrived at the conclusion of the inaugural NIGHTLIGHT festival experience. To conclude the long weekends festivities we shift gears into sweat dripping, transcendent, club mode. Jujulipps and Church & AP join forces with reigning Queen of the stage JessB.

Jujulipps star is on the rise. As the South African born party starter screams in her new single “Saucy” I SAID IF IM TOO SPICY DONT HIT IT UP WITH ME. Unapologetically herself Jujulipps is on a mission of empowerment. Turn up early to hear whats good.

Globe trotting, award winning, fiercely independent streaming sensations Church & AP are writing their own script. Currently working on their sophomore studio album, the prolific rap duo churn out banger after banger. There’s a reason they’re a favourite on the festival circuit. Get ahead of the masses and atone for your sins early with Church on a Saturday.

Queen of the game JessB constantly surprises in her tireless pursuit to push boundaries and challenge herself. Her smouldering, electric performances have a gravitational pull, leaving audiences in a spellbound state of joy and carefree abandonment. Leave your troubles at the door and trust in JessB to choreograph the night of your life.
