Orientadium MMXII

The Otago University Students’ Association is proud to announce
February 20-25, 2012

This February, OUSA take over the brand new Forsyth Barr Stadium to present the biggest Orientation Week the country has ever seen, hosting top flight New Zealand music legends and a selection of our funniest comedians.

“Otago University is known for having the best mix of top notch study and fun.” says OUSA President Logan Edgar. “Our team has sorted out the ultimate student stadium experience, and we’re ready to host the biggest O Week in New Zealand ever!”

OUSA Events Manager Kitty Brown says she is delighted to take advantage of such a great new venue for Orientadium MMXII. “We’re using Forsyth Barr Stadium as much as we can with the West Stand being used for seating during the comedy and hypnotist shows, and the East Stand will have the seats removed to make a huge dance floor for the live music shows”.

Shihad have been forging their reputation as this country’s greatest stadium rock outfit since before most Otago undergraduates were even born, and they will be mining their two-decades-plus back catalogue at Orientadium MMXII. Rock n roll history lessons this good should be made compulsory.

Hip-hop heroism abounds when Harlem-based superstar David Dallas brings his full live band to Dunedin for the very first time, sharing the stage with heavyweights PNC & P Money and rap’s enigmatic enfant terrible Home Brew.

Orientadium MMXII assembles New Zealand’s funniest Shorter Person (Dai Henwood), youngest Billy T Award Winner (Rhys Mathewson) and biggest fan fiction fan (Rose Matafeo) for a night of Big Laugh Comedy, and the legendary Toga Party kicks off the week’s celebrations with big time tunes from Bulletproof & Jessie G.

Forsyth Barr Stadium, February 20-25

Shihad, David Dallas, PNC & P-Money, Bulletproof & Jessie G, Home Brew, Dai Henwood, Rhys Mathewson, Rose Matafeo and very special guests including one more MASSIVE headliner to be announced 9th of January 2012.

Tickets available from Ticket Direct Monday January 16th at 9am.
