Joining the already scorching first lineup is Tiki Taane, poised to deliver one of his trademark killer live sets. Offering a dose of seriously great soul will be Hollie Smith, and Glasgow sound system Mungo's Hi Fi will bring the best in dancehall reggae vibes.
US rapper Ace Cosgrove and Sydney’s Lime Cordiale join Wellington’s own global diva Iva Lamkum on the bill, while local legends Cornerstone Roots and Raiza Biza make a welcome Soundsplash return.
