Hola Big Day Out! Lilyworld goes to Mexico!
Hola Big Day Out! Lilyworld goes to Mexico!
Everyone knows the way to LILYWORLD, the wacky heart of the BIG DAY OUT. But watch out because on BIG DAY OUT day in Auckland, January 15 at Mount Smart Stadium, LILYWORLD have created a Mexican plaza where you’ll lose yourself in a Kooky Karnival Mexican style. From Yucatan to Tijuana, from Playa del Loco to Citadel la Loony LILYWORLD’s four gringos, Signor Gringo Duckpondo, Hermano, Heavy G Chico Christo, & El Honcho Kronicho find themselves on a bender down Mehico way. Come join these amigos and their Latino friends as they blast their way though a fun filled fiesta complete with tequila, mules, sombreros, senoritas, mariachis and more!
You won’t want to miss the Mexican Fiasco Hour! A Mexican fiesta compete with the HUMAN PINYATA and Heavy Gees EXTREME FEED cuisine battle. SALSA FIGHTS and sculling comps are just the beginning….Is that Mexican Greg charging towards us?
Become one with your lost Latina persona and let the inner gringo run free!
And now (maraca shake please) LILYWORLD 2010 proudly presents….
Before there was Kool Keith, Old Dirty Bastard or 2 Live Crew - before there was hip-hop, for that matter - there was BLOWFLY, performing X-rated songs with a funky groove. Many people cite BLOWFLY as being the first rapper with his 1980 self-pressed "Rap Dirty" record. Sampled by many, including: The Jurassic 5, Ice Cube, Atmosphere, P Diddy, Beyonce and Wu Tang Clan, BLOWFLY's sounds are a staple of modern-day hip-hop.
An innovator in the Tijuana electronic music and video scene, DJ CHUCUCHU pumps out infectious Latin rhythms while his visual accompaniment will transport you to a familiar Cumbia fiesta. The recent wave of Cumbia music that has enveloped most of Latin America has a very active node across the border towns of northern Mexico. Tijuana’s electronic musicians have embraced this wave with gusto.
and producer POIRIER mixes fresh Caribbean sounds
including dancehall and soca with electro to create a dance
floor frenzy to rival the best Carnival celebrations around
the world. Joined on stage by hype man MC ZULU, their
sound is equal parts lilting calypso melodies, driving
percussion and traditional chutney sounds from the West
Indies. Welcome to the future of jump-and-wave riddims, with
our guarantee that nuff towels will be hoisted in the air
and twisted madly in appreciation. Equal parts grimey, sweat
inducing and fun-as-hell, POIRIER FEAT. MC ZULU will lift
the steamy roof of the Lilyworld well into the hot nights of
mayhem and lunacy.
As always, LILYWORLD is proud to present more fresh talent in every city we visit. Rocking Auckland for BIG DAY OUT 2010 is legendary DJs The Turnaround crew, dynamic Farmer Pimp blending a touch of spice with a little sweetener, our favourite reggae rockers Tahuna Breaks alongside superstars of dance, the Real Hot Bitches.
Salsa your way down low to Mehico for music, mayhem and so much more courtesy of the LILYWORLD amigos. It’s going to be habanero hot!
