BW Summer Festival world class acts: Flume & Peking Duk

BW Summer Festival announce world class acts
Flume & Peking Duk

BW Summer Festival has given their fans something to look forward to with the announcement of top international acts Flume and Peking Duk in the first of two line-up releases. The electronic music heavyweights join other headliners Shapeshifter and David Dallas in the festival’s biggest ever line up.

Over the past two years Harley Streten, AKA ‘Flume’ has made himself known around the world with his self-titled, self-produced album that reached the top of both the iTunes chart and Aria Albums chart. Award winning songs ‘Holdin On’ and ‘Sleepless’ have seen Flume invited to some of the biggest music festivals in the world, while his recent remix of Lorde’s ‘Tennis Court’ has propelled him onto the United States music charts.

No stranger to New Zealand, the Sydney born music producer first played at R&V in 2012 to a packed out Cellar Stage. At that time Flume was still a relative up and comer on the electronic music scene but has since become one of the biggest music producers in the world and the most requested act by BW Summer Festival fans.

“There was a loud voice coming from our ‘BW’ fans to secure Flume. It is a 2014 New Zealand exclusive performance. We know it will be a show to remember and on top of the rest of the acts we have lined up for the week, Gisborne will be pumping this New Year’s holiday,” says Festival Co-Director Toby Burrows.

A total of 15,000 people are expected to roll into Gisborne on the 27th and 28th of December for the BW Summer Festival making up over half of the attendees of the 3 day festival R&V which kicks off on the 29th December. The camping is spread over 5 huge sites dotted along the golden sands of Gisborne’s iconic Midway Beach and features a range of summer time activities.

BW’s second line-up announcement will be during August.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
