Mark Friday September 11th in your diary because the Others Way Festival is returning for another year! It will be the sixth year that Karangahape Road and surrounds have been filled with keen independent music fans, and a special one given the tumultuous year it has been for live music venues in particular. Flying Out Head Honcho Matthew Davis noted that
“It’s been a tough year for Karangahape Road and the wider music community. We had to think very seriously about whether to go ahead with the festival this year, but concluded that the very best way to support bands, our local venues and the hospitality community is to put on a show. The Others Way has become a fixture on the calendar for music lovers as well as one of the busiest nights of the year for the venues and nearby bars and restaurants. Karangahape Road is going to be packed on the night of the festival which will be great for everyone."
This year's edition will see over 40 acts perform, and two new venues to add into your circuit: Phoenix Cabaret and Monster Valley. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning (Friday 17th) at 10am right here. Keep an eye out for the line-up announcements over the coming weeks!
While you wait for September, cast your mind back to 2018's storming edition:
