If you thought the Bay Dreams Festival line-up was already next level, brace yourself – this third and final announcement knocks it out of the park.
Presented by Audiology and PATO Entertainment, New Year’s newest festival will kick off at ASB Bay Park Stadium in Tauranga with a warm-up party on January 1, with British dance and hip-hop maestro Example just announced as the night’s headliner.
Also warming up for the big day are The Upbeats feat. MC Tiki Taane, The Peace Keepers, Average Rap Band, Earth Tiger and Kings.
The main party gets underway on January 2, with US hip-hop star Yelawolf just confirmed. Undoubtedly one of the festival’s must-sees, the Alabama MC is known as one of the quickest and “lyrically dexterous” spitters in the game.
Also announced today is LA’s AC Slater, renowned for his unique blend of house music, dirty UK garage-inspired bass lines and old school rave synths.
Rounding off the third and final installment is one of New Zealand’s leading forces in the drum ‘n’ bass scene, TREI; local Bay of Plenty jack of all trades Brutus Powers; Dead Recipe; Booty Brothers and Troy Kete.
They join the already revealed line-up:
Shapeshifter, SKREAM, Sticky Fingers, Grandmaster Flash and Bizzy Bone, Ryan Hemsworth, Kilter, Summer Thieves, Herman Saiz, Rory Noble, Katchafire, Kora, Concord Dawn and Home Brew.
With such an epic line-up, and being situated just minutes away from Mount Maunganui and Papamoa beaches, Bay Dreams is gearing up to be one of the hottest tickets around this New Year, so those planning on being there need to get in quick to avoid disappointment. For those coming from out of town, there is onsite camping for two nights from January 1.
