Eclectic Garden Festival Announces Line-Up

Eclectic Garden Festival Announces Line-Up

“Immerse Yourself In The Magical Energy At Our Festival-In-A-Day”.
Kiwi favourites Salmonella Dub have been announced as the headline act at Eclectic Garden, in their first Auckland performance since 2008.


Garden event-goers will be able to dance barefoot on the lawn under the sun and stars at Corban Estate Art Centre in Henderson, Auckland. The audience we be treated to the beautifully blended sounds of 2018 ARIA nominee Mojo Juju, Latinaotearoa, Sandy Mill, Chi Katana, Rachel Sabin and FERKSTA. Music will be accompanied with world-class laser shows, live sculpture, painting, art and projections.


“We’re so excited for people to experience our immersive festival-in-a-day, dance on the grass, gaze at beautiful trees, soak in the colourful people, groove to international and kiwi music, then easily cruise home.” says John Paul Moss, event-organiser and owner/director of New Zealand-owned Aum Productions.


The zero-waste festival will deliver a diverse mix of performances, placing importance on inclusivity of minority cultures, women and LGBTQ artists, with a focus on high quality.


Moss says the experience is designed to be clean, safe for families with an emphasis on social responsibility. “We encourage families with children to enjoy an ultra-friendly, inclusive, fun festival with children under 14 able to attend for free”, says Moss. “The grounds are lush and spacious and have shelter, ample parking, accessible facilities, catering and security”.

The relaxed, picnic-style event is prepared to go ahead in any weather with a reserve venue booked. To reduce risk of harm by drink driving, event organisers are promoting use of public transport with train and bus facilities proximal to the venue.

Gates open at 1pm to Eclectic Garden’s family-friendly line-up on December 1, 2018. Moss says the reviews from last year were phenomenal but this year they hope to take it up another level!
