Add a comment

Joining the already scorching first lineup is Tiki Taane, poised to deliver one of his killer live sets.

Offering a dose of soul will be Hollie Smith, and Glasgow sound system Mungo's Hi Fi will bring the best in dancehall reggae vibes.

US rapper Ace Cosgrove and Sydney's Lime Cordiale join Wellington's Iva Lamkum on the bill, while local legends Cornerstone Roots and Raiza Biza make a welcome Soundsplash return.

A selection of top DJ talent is headed by George FM's Aroha, Jay Bulletproof and Cian, with RudeKat, Sgt Benji, Jungle Fari, DJ Atmosphere and B Rex also on hand to lay down the quality tunes.

And rounding out the lineup is a cast of Aotearoa's finest, including Sunshine Sound System, Hipstamatics, AceTones, K+Lab, ManaLion, Brown Brothers, Flowidus, Jafa Mafia, Mighty Mighty and Sister Nesk and MC Rafiki and Bobo.

They join the already announced Six60, Little Bushman, State of Mind, Three Houses Down, Ed Solo, Mike Love, My Baby, YT, Ocean Alley, Pacific Heights, MAALA, Drax Project, Diaz Grimm, Yoko-Zuna & Third3ye, Dubsonic and Jamin-I, to deliver what already promises to be the festival lineup of 2017.

Soundsplash originally ran from 2001-2008 and was voted Festival of Choice 2005/06 by Rip It Up magazine.

After a few silent years, Soundsplash has evolved into a multi sub genre music festival.

Soundsplash originally inspired a zero-waste movement at festivals. With its progressive environmental focus, Soundsplash supports off-the-grid and innovative new ideas, including organic architecture and hidden sustainable installations.

There will be on-site camping, beach access and an all-ages environment.
