  • Show map

Newtown Ave Stage is the spot to be for alternative and experimental electronic music. From techno to hip hop to pop to noise, NA welcomes festival goers to experience a diverse and current assemblage of artists showing off their expertise and innovation, and what is happening in the outer edges of the music scene.

NA is happy to have the opportunity to bring you artists from Newtown and across Aotearoa, as well as a special guest from Australia. Ptwiggs, also known as Phoebe Twiggs (producer/audio engineer) from Sydney, has shared bills with Nicholas Jaar and Yves Tumour, and performed at Unsound, Dark Mofo and Angelwave. Off the back of releasing their EP Darkening Of Light on Opal Tapes, we look forward to a Ptwiggs set that is delicate yet destructive, weaving an organic tapestry from both external and internal worlds.

Synthstrom Audible joins in as a supporter of the stage. SA are the creators behind the Deluge, the Newtown-made synthesiser that has become a global hit, with artists across the spectrum of genre and fame praising its capabilities as a musical instrument. We have artists shannengeorgiapetersen and Arcology showing us what you can do with the Deluge.

Newtown Ave Stage is kindly sponsored for the second year in a row by iconic local craft brewery Garage Project. They’ll be along with a thirst quenching selection of beverages all perfectly enjoyed in the heat of the day at Newtown Festival.

We look forward to having Peoples Coffee support the Newtown Festival again this year! Their roastery on Newtown Ave and flagship cafe on Constable Street will both be playing their parts throughout the day. We’re very excited to be enjoying some delicious cold coffees in the sun like last year. Keep an eye out for them!

This stage is kindly sponsored by Garage Project, supported by Peoples Coffee & Synthstrom Audible, thanks to MESH & Moments, and curated by E&E.
