Outer Limits lineup changes


Young Thug Cancels | Alison Wonderland to the rescue

DUNEDIN (February 26, 2018) – The organisers of Outer Limits festival regret to announce that Atlanta rapper YOUNG THUG will no longer be making the journey downunder due to being unable to secure an Australian visa.

Young Thug was granted a New Zealand visitor visa on 12 February 2018, so he is entitled to enter New Zealand and to perform. Since his Australian tour dates were cancelled we have tried to get him to honour his commitment to play in New Zealand, but to no avail. Young Thug has made the decision not to come to New Zealand.

Stepping into the breach however we are delighted to announce that Australian dance pioneer ALISON WONDERLAND will now be performing as part of the festival.

Alison is a true pioneer of electronic music and she has risen to become one of the most popular EDM acts on the planet. Her appearance at Outer Limits crowns another huge summer with her star set to rise even higher through 2018.

FORSYTH BARR STADIUM, DUNEDIN FRIDAY 2 MARCH
REMAINING TICKETS AVAILABLE AT TICKETMASTER

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
