Migos announced for Bay Dreams 2019

US hip hop trio, Migos, to headline the Bay Dreams North Island festival in 2019



The chart-topping, history-making American hip-hop trio Migos has been confirmed for Bay Dreams 2019, headlining the North Island event in Mount Maunganui.

The Grammy-nominated act (made up of rappers Quavo, Offset and Takeoff) has released a string of critically-acclaimed, record breaking albums, including 2017’s CULTURE, followed by this year’s CULTURE II, both of which topped the US Billboard 200.

CULTURE II also topped the iTunes albums charts in 60 countries and debuted at #1 in 62 countries on Apple Music, achieving one of the largest streaming debut weeks in Apple Music’s history. It’s now been streamed more than 1 billion times and certified Platinum.

Their blockbuster single ‘MotorSport’, featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, earned Double Platinum status in Canada, and Platinum status in the US. Their second single, ‘Stir Fry’, produced by Pharrell Williams, was the official song for NBA's All-Star weekend.

Minos joins a talent-packed line-up of acts already announced to play at the North Island festival, as well as the massive warm-up party.

They include Shapeshifter, Tash Sultana, Sticky Fingers, Peking Duk, $uicideboy$, Macky Gee, Pnau and Katchafire.

Another line-up announcement can also be expected, with more exciting local and international acts joining the party.

Bay Dreams has established itself as New Zealand’s biggest festival, selling out year after year. And now with the event being held across two islands, and close to some of the best beaches and holiday hot spots in the world, it’s gearing up to be the highlight of the Kiwi summer. Both locations now boast two main stages for the first time.

Camping is available at both festivals, and this year steps it up once again with entertainment such as NZ’s biggest silent disco; a premium marketplace and hot showers.

The famous one-day Earlybird ticket deal starts 7.00pm Wednesday July 25 from
