/The Sounds On Lineup
Carefully curated, the event brings together a raft of Aotearoa’s favourite acts – from the well established and respected, to the trailblazing and burgeoning.

Having just finished international tours and taken home Tuis for “Best Roots Album” and “Best Urban/Hip Hop Album” at the 2012 NZ Music Awards respectively, The Black Seeds and Home Brew will be storming the Sounds On stage to deliver blazing sets that Upper North Islanders won’t have had the chance to catch for months prior.

Off the back of a US tour and residency, and after releasing his EP, Buffalo Man, David Dallas will be performing one of just a few highly-anticipated sets on home soil this summer.

Katchafire and TrinityRoots will be delivering their much loved rootsy, classics, Tahuna Breaks will be serving up funked up tracks off their soon-to-be released third album and Tiki Taane will be treating audiences to a particularly intimate, acoustic set.

Live favourites, AHoriBuzz, will be dropping their signature groove-ridden and crowd-arousing jams while; well-known George FM DJ and Selectah, Dan Aux will be stoking the fire and bringing the heat with a set of banging tunes that feature the vocal stylings of iconic Drum n Bass MC and stalwart, Tali.
Happening a mere 20 minutes North of Auckland City on the well-manicured grounds of The Oval, Tuborg Sounds On will bring together the best NZ live acts and sustainability to create the perfect close to the 2013 Kiwi summer - we hope to see you there!
