BW Announces Line-up for 2012
The countdown to the ultimate New Year experience has begun… and there’s nowhere better to be than the first city to see the sun. Gisborne’s BW Campground is proud to announce a bigger and better musical line-up than ever before.
In the lead-up to New Zealand’s premiere music festival, Rhythm and Vines, BW’s Jim Beam Soundshell is hosting the largest acts NZ has to offer, plus some quality international artists keeping it fresh. The line-up has something for every kind of music fan and will get the summer partying off to a killer start.
Now in its ninth year, BW has grown into a festival event all of its own. Hosting 15,000+ people across five campsites set right on the beach, it’s the perfect way to get everyone primed for R&V with six full days of fun, sun and entertainment and two big concert nights on the 27th and 28th.
BW’s line-up includes:
Six60. Kora. Opiuo
State of Mind(Live). David Dallas(Live).
Tiki Taane (Acoustic). GasLamp Killer
Optimus Gryme feat: MC Tiki Taane
Crushington. Sunshine Soundsystem. Trei.
DJ Downtown Brown. Jupiter Project feat: Jessie G.
Grgfmbrkfstdjs – (aka Nick Dwyer & Dean Campbell)
Dan Aux. Eddie Numbers. Tim Richards
Daniel Farley. General Lee. Beat Mafia.
Jamie White. Tom McGuinness. Pato.
Tommy Gee. Ollus. Tim Livingston.
The Missing Link. Vega. Soul Society
Brazilbeat Sound System. Campbell
DJ Sanka. DJ Reesy + many more
BW Director Toby Burrows is excited by the campground’s growth from one camping site into a major week-long event involving five camp sites, and now with a line-up as strong as any other summer festival in NZ.
He says; “We are stoked with the line-up this year. Such a strong list of NZ’s biggest artists, with a couple of quality internationals - GasLamp Killer (USA), and Opiuo (Aus) in the mix it really sets the tone for the start to a massive week.”
Ticket sales for BW 2012 are strong, and it’s looking like it will be another sell-out year for sure. Day tickets will be available for people to attend the concerts even if they’re not camping for the week, but these will be limited so it will pay to get in quick. Burrows would like to see Gisborne locals heading along to the gig to support the many artists from the region.
“An important part of the whole event for us is providing a platform for local artists to perform on a stage alongside the country’s best known acts. It’s a great opportunity to put their talents on display to a large audience.” – Burrows
The overall BW experience is unbeatable in terms of having the quintessential Kiwi summer trip. The week can be spent lazing around on the beautiful beaches, surfing, taking day trips to Morere Hot Springs or the Rere Falls water slide, kicking back in the campsite playing sport, or hanging out at local cafes and bars. Then at night, the amazing beachside Soundshell concert is the only place to be.
Many thanks to BW’s sponsors Jim Beam, Skinny Mobile, and Pump for their continued support.
