HUP is excited to announce further line-up and ticketing details for our inaugural music festival, FUTURE CITY 2017. The festival will take place on the 3rd and 4th of March, across two venues, Nivara Lounge and Creative Waikato, both in Hamilton’s CBD.
In November we released details of the first ten bands that will take part - Alexa Dexa (NYC), Wax Chattels (Akl), Invisible Threads (Akl), The Joint Chiefs (Wgtn), Threat.Meet.Protocol (Katikati), Contenders (Ham), Old Loaves (Ham), Celebrity Death Hoax (Ham), Rumpus Room (Ham) & Halcyon Birds (Ham).
Joining the above will another overseas act, Montreal-based electro-noise-experimentalist Blankets. A host of indie/punk bands from Auckland will also appear, namely Two Cartoons, Skux, The Biscuits, Spawts and Centre Negative along with hip-hop from the incredible Dbldbl. Hamilton is also strongly represented with punk bands Wizz Kids and The Recently Deceived being joined by indie-rock from Ancient Tapes, Louder Louder, Half Eaten Pie and DateMonthYear. Surf-rockers The Hollow Grinders, trip-hopper WendyD and electro-rock starlet Glass Shards complete the list of local bands taking part.
Ticket numbers are limited due to the cosy nature of the venues being used.
Weekend tickets are available from Dec 9th from undertheradar.co.nz. A limited amount of earlybird tickets are available now at just $25. Once the earlybird allocation is sold out, the remaining tickets will go on sale at the full price of $35. No one-day tickets are planned at this stage.
