4th Weekend, 15 - 17 march

We regret to announce that the planned performances of RoZéO on 15, 16 and 17 March have been cancelled due to last minute international air freight cancellations which has meant that the specialised equipment required for the aerial performances will not arrive in time.

This means the Moana Auckland Festival Hub will be closed on Friday, but rest assured, we have an incredible lineup of performances on Saturday and Sunday.

Electronic / Dance

ABG is a Pōneke-based producer, selector and radio host. A drummer by trade, Josh (Recitals, SODA BOYZ) began producing under the ABG moniker to avoid having to try and play in time. Their string of releases via imprints such as the Big Fresh Collective highlight a penchant for kicks, breakbeats and sub-rattling basslines. However, their live performances are a more tempered affair, corralling an ensemble of drum machines and synthesisers to create danceable, evolving, soundtracks.

Pop & Disco

Phoebe’s been DJing between NZ and LA since 2002, she had residencies at all the top spots in Hollywood and played parties in mansions for everyone from Annie Lennox to Claire Danes. 

Phoebe is most proud of the long-standing and historic club nights she created in NZ - if not for those dance floors we’d have about 30 less kids in the population! She loves being part of the culture here and playing alongside the dj legends she’s always looked up to.

Miss Mixtape


Born from the mosh pits of a legacy of rock concerts and the irreverent Paddock of Kiwiburn, miss mixtape donned her best rock n roll gumboots, sparked up her disco inferno, and brought music with words to festivals with more sparkle than a mirror ball! 

From a wide spectrum of musical influence, she’s been dipping into the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and the noughties, mastering her craft and developing a unique dance floor style, spinning a fusion of dirty rock classics fused together with sultry house and disco, just like your favourite mixtape from days gone by.
