the others way festival 2019 - AUG 30

Save the date! This Friday 30th August, Auckland’s Karangahape Road district will come to life as the annual multi-venue extravaganza returns to celebrate the best in alternative music from across the country (and a few from around the globe). The 2019 festival takes place across 12 venues including The Wine Cellar, Whammy Bar and Backroom, the majestic Hopetoun Alpha, Mercury Theatre and more. Fanning the flames of excitement for the winter festival are local legends The Chills, Straitjacket Fits, Blam Blam Blam and The Terminals, performing alongside such crucial recent figures as US synth-pop wizard John Maus, ex-Christchurch avant-rockers DOG Power, Auckland cyber-pop star Princess Chelsea, rising NZ-raised Persian rapper CHAII, and California songsmith Chris Cohen (Captured Tracks).
