Aro Creative w/ Sky Canvas, Heavy Chest, Neil MacLeod, Ludus

Aro Creative is anchoring a stage on Wellington’s good-looking waterfront to beat the drum on Wellington Anniversary Day! The first regional public holiday of 2018 shells out the freedom to appreciate the city, the ocean, multiple music stages, kids rides, coffee, a supervised cardboard craft area for kids, food, and hopefully lots of sun!

Local musicians including electronic producers, indie rockers and kaleidoscopic prog/soul-hop fiestas will sail down on Frank Kitts Park to freewheel amidst divas, denizens and young whippersnappers of Wellington.

This is the second in a series of events by Aro Creative, including an all ages music eventat Aro Valley Hall on January 20th and another at Kilbirnie Festival on March 11th. The intention is to work with the same artists to create a body politic of, and symbiosis between, Wellington’s creative people and encouraging an artistic society of musicians, listeners and dancers.

This stage is one part of a larger event with local artists, food, enjoying oneself and unflappable views of wellington's spectacular waterfront. It's going to be swimming! Roust details and artist profiles from the event Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/209295589641066/
