13 Mar The A List: Weekend of Music
We may be small but we are mighty – especially when it comes to music! New Zealand has been attracting some pretty major names in recent times, including Sting, Justin Timberlake and Queen B (Beyonce) herself – and our local talent is worth a listen too.
Want proof? Head along to some of the amazing gigs lighting up our shores this weekend. We guarantee there’ll be good beats and a chance to show off your sweet moves – even if that pesky storm decides to gatecrash.
WOMAD, New Plymouth
The World of Music and Dance festival hits New Plymouth this weekend promising three days of fantastic cultural food, art and music. With four stages and over 30 acts there’s a whole lot of fun to be had!
Keen for a drink beforehand? Why not check out New Plymouth’s favourite go-to, Our Place. Central location, comfy booths and an extensive range of cocktails, it’s definitely the place to be. They are also hosting the WOMAD after party with guest DJs from the festival.
The Eagles, Auckland
