You can’t deny that friends across the ditch have some pretty damn enviable musical talent some of the time. They’ve produced incredible songwriters and performers for many years now and some say that New Zealand music is going through its strongest period yet in this day and age. The Natural New Zealand Music Festival is embracing the music of New Zealand with an all Kiwi line up that showcases some mighty fine talent.
The bill is headed up by the mighty drum’n’bass worldbeaters Shapeshifter, who are getting back into the swing of live performance with a series of shows set for the end of the year, and the reggae, rock, roots powerhouse that is Kora. Joining these New Zealand music heavyweights will be hip hop/soul artist du jour Ladi6, legendary trio Trinity Roots, gifted wordsmith David Dallas, the always awesome P-Money and fantastic Maori singer-songwriterMaisey Rika.
Ask anyone who attended last year’s inaugural NATURAL show they will all tell you the same thing, “It was primo!!”. Natural featured a great line-up, in a beautiful venue which made for a wicked day with choice vibes. An all-round successful celebration of New Zealand music and culture attended by thousands of Kiwi’s, and fans of Kiwi music alike.
The crew at the NZA Music offices have worked their butts off this year to bring an even bigger selection of Aotearoa’s finest artists to Perth. Delving into more genres and featuring more artists means NATURAL 2012 will be 10 hours of EN-ZED goodness!
Tickets for the festival go on sale from Monday 3 September.
