You know summer is on its way when the music festival announcements start rolling in. Despite an end to the Big Day Out, there are plenty of gigs to get excited about in New Zealand, starting with the mammoth Our:House Festival at Mount Smart Stadium on Friday 28th November
The Our:House Festival has fast become one of the largest parties on the Kiwi summer calendar, arriving precisely when university exams wrap up and kicking off a season of live gigs. Now in its third year, Our:House Festival has just announced international heavyweights Skrillex and Steve Aoki
, alongside super hot artists MK and What So Not
. Spread across three stages and eight hours with a whole host of other international acts, local legends and carnival rides, the Our:House Festival has fast become one of New Zealand’s largest dance parties.
Officials from Our:House have said the festival is headed for sellout. Having been on sale for less than a week, the Our:House Festival 2014 is selling like mad. Read our rundown of the three headliners we’re super pumped to see and grab a ticket here
before they sell out.
Having sold millions of records and won a handful of Grammy Awards, Skrillex today tours the world as
one of the most popular acts on the planet, bringing tunes like ‘Bangarang’ to the main stage of festivals like Tomorrowland, Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Music Festival. Born and raised in California, real name Sonny John Moore has become famous for his insane live sets, innovative music videos and a relationship with pop princess Ellie Goulding. His latest EP Recess was released in March.
Even though he’s critically acclaimed for his epic remixes, cutting-edge fashion and for being the highest grossing dance artist in the US for 2012, Japanese-American electro house musician Steve Aoki is more well known for his acrobatic crowd surfing stunts, throwing cake at fans, spraying champagne bottles, and riding rafts on the dance floor. His third studio album Neon Future I is expected to drop any day now.
American producer and house music legend Marc Kinchen, better known as MK, has hit number one on the Billboard dance charts with his hits ‘Always’ and ‘Love Changes’. He’s also responsible for the iconic remix of the Nightcrawlers’ record ‘Push the Feeling On’, which was used as the basis of rapper Pitbull’s global hit record ‘Hotel Room Service’ and reached number three on the UK charts. His arrival down under this year is perfectly timed with a resurgence in house music.
