Auckland City Limits Lineup Changes


Young Thug Cancels | Scribe and P Money to the rescue

The organisers of Auckland City 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 local legends Scribe and P Moneywill deliver a set packed with the biggest bangers – including Not Many, Stand Up and Stop the Music - in New Zealand hip-hop history.

Scribe has owned stages at Australasia’s largest festivals over the past 15 years, his songs are true national anthems and they still speak with the authentic voice that makes hip-hop the most vital contemporary musical form. With his main man P Money back at his side, these local heroes are sure to bring it to the Auckland City Limits stage this Saturday

Updated set times are available HERE.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

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>>

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. 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>>
