Karangahape Road festival The Others Way announces a line-up that digs deep into the rich vein of pure gold that is New Zealand’s alternative music scene
The Others Way 2020 includes folk darling Nadia Reid in her only Auckland show with her full band. The Phoenix Foundation take time out from their new music for an exclusive performance of Buffalo, celebrating the reissue of the acclaimed album on the 10th anniversary of its release. The line-up features artists of the moment JessB, Reb Fountain and Finn Andrews, with Beastwars bringing their immense sludge metal sound to the festival, and The Golden Awesome playing a rare live show.
In the Music Royalty category, The Others Way is thrilled to announce an appearance by New Zealand Hip Hop founders Upper Hutt Posse. Flying Nun icons The Bats and their labelmates The Subliminals and Dead Famous People will also play, and power-pop heroes Voom make a welcome return to the festival.
Showcasing artists at all stages of their careers, the line-up once again features exciting emerging talent such as Wellington pop singer RIIKI, Christchurch alt-country hero Ryan Fisherman, rising rappers Diggy Dupé and Gino October, indie super-group GuardianSingles and talented newcomers Same Name Confusion.
This year's label curated stages feature Noa Records, a new label focused on spotlighting alternative music from Pasifika and indigenous Māori musicians, and local Auckland label Sunreturn will also host a stage spotlighting their wonderfully eclectic roster including recent bFM chart-topper - K M T P.
