  • Free Admission



CubaDupa will be returning to the streets of Wellington in all its glory on the 27th and 28th of March 2021. The whole country is invited to join the Beautiful Disruption, and reset your frequency at the most creative and diverse event on the calendar.

This free, family-friendly event, interrupts your regular weekend schedule to bring you over 19 hours of curated entertainment spanning multiple genres and creative mediums. CubaDupa has become synonymous with colour, character, costume and a weekend at which Wellingtonians feel free to bring out their wild side.

A riot of noise and colour, with visual, kinetic and tactile installations, the CubaDupa has become a creative playground that blurs the line between the audience and performer. The festival boasts 12 parades, street theatre, dance, roving performances, family entertainment, and musical genres from orchestral to Māori dub grooves, second-line brass to breakbeat, and indie rock to post-punk.

Combining local and national artists, our focus is about enriching the community with artistic excellence. Offering inclusion, participation and artistic exploration for all, the soul of Cuba St will come to life with 450 curated performances by over 1700 artists, and the annual street feast which includes over 100 food vendors and licensed areas in the completely pedestrianised Cuba Street Precinct.

Come, join the beautiful disruption, and channel your inner CubaDupa!
