First Line-up Announcement For Welcome To Nowhere Festival 2021

Welcome to Nowhere is returning next February for its fifth annual music and arts festival!

Hosted by Pōneke-based Eyegum Music Collective, the two-day indie festival will be held over Waitiangi weekend at an idyllic location somewhere near Whanganui. Some of New Zealand’s most talented and exciting artists will showcase a diverse offering of music, poetry, comedy and visual art against a backdrop of regenerating native bush and birdsong. 

Lucky campers will get the chance to spend a couple of long summer days and nights immersed in a festival experience that is entirely unique. Festival goers will be able to dance to bands from all over Aotearoa and listen to award winning poets, all while lazing in the swimming hole. 

Attendees can check out carefully curated art displays or catch an afternoon comedy set as the sun sets over rolling green hills and limestone ravines. Now in the festival’s fifth year, Eyegum is expanding the event to include an all new stage and added camping capacity. We reckon Welcome to Nowhere 2021 is set to be the best one yet.

We are excited to announce the first round of incredible musicians on the line up for Welcome to Nowhere 2021:

Arjuna Oakes, Bathysphere, Bitchmagic, Dick Move, Hahko, Hans Pucket, Hummucide, Linen, Ludus, Macho Macho, ONONO, Ounce, Skilaa, Soft Plastics, Space Trash, The Spectre Collective, Transistor, Vanessa Worm, Wet Specimen, Wiri Donna.

Howard Davis: Roddy Doyle's Grim and Gritty Rosie

Although it was completed over two years ago, Roddy Doyle's first original screenplay in over eighteen years has only just arrived in New Zealand. It's been well worth the wait. More>>

Simon Nathan: No Ordinary In-Laws

The title of this short memoir by Keith Ovenden is misleading – it would be better called “Bill, Shirley and me” as it is an account of Ovenden’s memories of his parents-in-law, Bill Sutch and Shirley Smith. His presence is pervasive through the book. All three participants are (or were) eloquent, strongly-opinionated intellectuals who have made significant contributions to different aspects of New Zealand life. Their interactions were often complex and difficult... More>>
