25 Aug 16: Soundsplash 2017 First Lineup

A three-day, three-stage, multi-genre event, Soundsplash is once again bringing the sound of summer, with a stonking first line-up announcement for the January festival.

Coming home from their LA base especially for the New Zealand summer SIX60 will make their Soundsplash debut, bringing their legendary live show to the Raglan shores. Joining them will be Little Bushman, who are making a much-welcome return to the festival with their unique blues-based psychedelic brew. State of Mind are set to deliver some next level face melting drum n bass, while kiwi favourites Three Houses Down will dispense a 10-piece dose of reggae goodness.

It’s not just the homegrown talent making the trip to the mighty Waikato. UK DJ Ed Solo adds a killer concoction of dubstep and electro-fuelled breaks, while Hawaii’s Mike Love, Amsterdam’s My Baby, the UK’s YT and Sydney favourites Ocean Alley will be flying over to grace the stages with their blues and reggae sounds.

Pacific Heights, MAALA, Drax Project and Diaz Grimm will be joined by firm favourites Yoko-Zuna & Third3ye, Dubsonic and Jamin-I – all promising to provide super-sized servings of Aotearoa’s finest.

The epitome of freedom, with stunning coastal views, on-site camping, beach access and a great all-ages environment, Soundsplash is the must-do summer festival of 2017. With earlybird tickets already sold out, advance tickets are now on sale from eventfinda.co.nz
