AYN RANDY are a four piece punx babe band from Wellington! Who play some damn fine garage-poppy punk and enjoy memes, hugging their pets, coffee, out gif-ing each other and sometimes they try be cool and co-ordinate sweet stage outfits!

BLOODBAGS - Noise RocknRoll Rumble, Gutbucket Scuzz, Heap of Howling, Clang & Clatter. What this temperamental 6 year old local groop of neer-do-well towers of power peddle. Six years existing, two trips thru tha Muricas, four seven inch slabs of plastic, and it aint worn them out yet. Plenty more anti-social rollin noise to come...

BOZO: Shake Appeal. The jangle feast with lateral beats.

CHURCH & AP are are two teenagers from Tāmaki Makaurau that are making waves in the rap game.

CINDY - is a 4 piece group from Auckland that was started by mistake after wanting to sound like the Beach Boys. We had some fun and dont sound like the Beach Boys.


HA THE UNCLEAR, Alt-Pop/New Wave/Indie from South Dunedin based in Auckland

IMUGI 이무기 are the silky electronic duo that released their first EP titled ‘Vacasian’, a trip through the diasporic-Asian-girl-psyche and the healing it takes to go from self-consciousness to self-awareness. With roots in South Korea and Aotearoa, the EP explores the multi-faceted, wholesome identities and complex issues that migrant women of colour face, through a mix of styles ranging from R&B, synth-pop, funk and spoken word. The goal is to embrace multiculturalism and challenge Eurocentric structures within our culture.

K2K AKA Katherine Anderson is an artist on the cusp of a fresh wave of New Zealand House and Techno talent. K2K has also established herself as a DJ to watch, secured recent international support sets for Gerd Janson and Kevin Saunderson, and featured at Low Hum NYE and Laneway festival in Auckland over recent summers.

LONG DISTANCE RUNNER an experimental Post-Hardcore band from Auckland New Zealand featuring members of Parents, Sere, How Get and Human Resource. Long Distance Runner bring a unique distinctive and frantic energy, their sound blends melody and discordance into an unpredictable, cathartic haze.

MAGIC FACTORY: If youre a fan of Creedence, the Stones or ZZ Top, youll like MAGIC FACTORY. Even if you hate those bands, you might still find something to enjoy though admittedly its unlikely. Magic Factory took a short hiatus after having a fine time at Gonerfest in Memphis and on the Golden Dawn stage at Auckland City Limits, but are back and pretty much the same as before, albeit with a slight reshuffle of the pack. They couldnt be happier to be playing Whammy!fest and look forward to a good times set of tunes that include the only song youre likely to have heard already (Mother Nature) and some new songs from their upcoming second album.

MATTHEW CRAWLEY just likes to make people dance!

NERVOUS JERK: The 3 piece power-pop-punk band from Christchurch.

RANDA raps.

SKILAA is the brainchild of Chelsea Prastiti and Michael Howell - good beats with a healthy dose of neo soul, hip-hop, alternative folk and improvisation, in addition to some thick vocal harmonies that draw inspiration from both African and Balkan singing traditions. The group recently released their first single Bluffin off their upcoming EP.

UNSANITARY NAPKIN are a staunchly political anarchopunk from Poneke Wellington, in Aotearoa New Zealand (members of Rogernomix, Downer Buzz and The All Seeing Hand), vomiting political rage like a sped-up Rudimentary Peni with the joyful energy of Devo and the anti-patriarchal vitriol of Emma Goldman. Unsanitary Napkin released a new 7”, “Orgasmic Capitalism”, which follows up their 12 Patriotic Grooves.

ZHUKOV: Christchurch guillotine punks (members of Nervous Jerk, Arm and Hammer and Master Blaster) play short, fast songs inspired by dialectical and historical materialism.

Expect another line up announce in the coming weeks, and start preparing your costumes - its Halloween!
