Tangata Whenua Stage // 2:05 – 2:55pm

Newtown Rocksteady was founded in 2007 and began its life playing covers of Jamaican classics to Newtown audiences. The band has its roots firmly embedded in the traditions of Jamaican rocksteady, ska and reggae music though their set is a mixture of originals and classics.

This music has always had an intimate connection with dancing and that legacy continues. This is groove based music that hits you in the chest and moves the rest.
