Northern Bass is a three-day music festival set in beautiful farmland just north of Auckland. The soundtrack features musicians, DJs and producers from around the globe playing on two main stages and a lagoon-side mini stage.
Festival Director Gareth Popham says that Northern Bass is an amazing New Year experience for music fans, combining an incredible location with the best music line-up possible.
"We've come a long way since the first Northern Bass in 2011, with a really loyal base of supporters who come back every year with their mates. Even before today's first line-up announcement, Northern Bass 19/20 is our fastest selling festival yet. We're really excited to announce some big names and emerging acts today, and can't wait to share the rest of the line-up in the next couple of months."
There’ll be over dozen food outlets catering to all tastes from our friends Burgerfuel, Fatimas and Hell Pizza as well as boutique vendors.
To start it off we’re stoked to share that electro-grime lords Foreign Beggars will make their way to Northern Bass one last time, after announcing that they’ll part ways following the release of their final album later this year. US rapper Freddie Gibbs makes his Northern Bass debut fresh from the release of Bandana, his latest critically acclaimed collaboration with Madlib.
It wouldn’t be Northern Bass without local legends taking the stage and we cannot wait to welcome back Fat Freddy’s Drop with their full-energy, full-noise set. Breakout Kiwi bass producer Quix is going to take time out from his relentless international touring schedule for a headline set at the festival.
One, two and three-day festival tickets, camping, caravan and Bass Hotel passes and bus passes are available now from northernbass.co.nz.
