Sunshine Soldiors Heat Up Southern Lakes

28 Jan

Queenstown is heating up to welcome the cream of New Zealand’s musical royalty to one of the most loved music celebrations on the national events calendar.

On Saturday February 9th 2013, The Wakatipu Basin will once again resonate with the superlative sounds of top-shelf Aotearoan music for the 2nd biennial Shotover Sunshine Festival.  Event organisers are hard at work engineering a vibe like no other, bringing together an awe-inspiring line up to a majestic location that aims to blow the senses and shower sunshine on the people of the Southern lands.

Located in the bosom of Godzone itself, the festival will take place on beautiful grasslands on little road, next to the famous Shotover River, only 10 minutes from central Queenstown.  Shotover Sunshine Festival prevails in its ability to organically draw together New Zealand’s finest musical whanau delivering nothing less than a live music spectacular.

The heavyweight lineup includes; KORA, THE BLACK SEEDS, TIKI TAANE (acoustic), LADI6 , THE UPBEATS, SOLA ROSA, AHORIBUZZ, THE PEACEKEEPERS (FEAT. P-DIGSSS, BORA & NICKY RESEARCH), SUNSHINE SOUND SYSTEM, MC TALI, FUNKOMMUNITY, RHYTHMONYX, SOULSYSTEM, K+LAB and more, hosted & toasted by MC KPz


“The festival is a celebration of the many things for which we are thankful. Awesome NZ music, culture & landscape, Waitangi unity, and the birth of Bob Marley”
– Simon Hendi aka Downtown Brown

 
a dedication to superior production means that the effortless power and unsurpassed clarity of Western Audio’s ‘D&B’ sound system had to be booked, courtesy of Underground Production, and the new 1 am finish time is a great excuse to rig up an extended lighting and video installation, making optimal use of the extra hour of darkness.

If rolling like a gangsta is your thing, then grab yourself a VIP ticket and indulge yourself a good old pampering with fancy everything. You can even arrive via helicopter if you wish. There’s also buses from QT and Wanaka return for a good price, so be sure to pre-pay for an easy, and safe travel option.

There’s also a fully licensed bar, delicious food, kids play area with a bouncy castle. Yay!
