This year will be no different with some of the world’s best electronic dance acts booked to play.

The unique stage will house a 4000 strong dance floor, with a DJ booth at the core of the structure, a towering spire that fires 30 foot flames into the air, flaming tree sculptures, and a barrage of light and visuals that shoot out across the crowd in synchronization. Surrounded by a heavyweight sound system, the spiraling arms of the Afterburner reach into the crowd creating multi level dance platforms along them.

This is the first time the Arcadia Afterburner has been to these shores and it is like no other DJ stage seen in New Zealand before.
