Endeavour Live and Live Nation present Spring City, featuring Two Door Cinema Club, Flight Facilities, Crooked Colours, Foley + Support.
Following the success of EDM festival Electric Gardens, Ellerslie Racecourse will once again transform into a lively metropolis of food and dance as some of the world's top indie-electro acts take to the big stage on Sunday November 24th for Spring City.
Coming out of Northern Ireland, Two Door Cinema Club are one of the biggest indie pop bands on the planet and will headline the festival. Their 2010 timeless album ‘Tourist History’ propelled them onto the scene with hits such as ‘Something Good Can Work’ and ‘I Can Talk’ with Spring City marking their first performance in Aotearoa.
Making the trans-tasman trip are Flight Facilities, the producer duo from Sydney who make an infectious transition between electronic and pop. After releasing their debut album in late 2014 ‘Down To Earth’, Flight Facilities have stayed on the radar with strings of singles and remixes. A recent sold out show at Auckland’s Powerstation and headline performance at Gisborne’s Rhythm and Vines show the Aussie duo have a strong Kiwi fan base.
A recent sold out tour of New Zealand sees Perth indie-electro dance three piece Crooked Colours join us from Australia for the debut of Spring City. After originally starting off as house party DJs, the trio took a turn and developed a full scale live set to accompany their own original music. Earlier this year they released their second album ‘Langata’, the three-piece have plenty of new material to treat us to.
Honest to a fault, Foley have quickly picked up a fanbase of young like-minded listeners for their fun-loving attitude, and genuinely unbreakable friendship. The pair have made a name for themselves by acting out against the standard producer-vocalist two piece model; instead writing, performing and producing everything completely collaboratively.
Only 10 minutes from the central city, The Spring City location of the Ellerslie Racecourse infield will be transformed into a lively metropolis, complete with some of Auckland's best food venders and off stage entertainment. Co-producer and self-professed Mayor of Spring City Kyle Bell says “We have eagerly anticipated the return to Ellerslie Racecourse after successfully delivering Electric Gardens earlier this year with Fatboy Slim, Sigma and Bag Raiders. Audiences really responded to the line up and location so we can’t wait to return to welcome the new residents of Spring City.”
