The Liquorland New Zealand Beer Festival returns to Auckland in 2009, now in its third year the Festival has gone from strength to strength. Each year the uniquely Kiwi mix of Beer, Food, Music and Summer creates an unforgettable atmosphere for Good Times with Great Mates.
Over 60 beers from more than 20 breweries will be represented at the festival, featuring a wide range of New Zealand beers, with a few notable overseas visitors.
We’re blessed with an amazing range of quality food to compliment beer tasting, from traditional New Zealand fare to European, Asian and Middle Eastern.
We’ve got an eclectic line-up of great summer sounds, from a chilled vibe during the day to energetic acts you’ll know the words to later on…
Carving a niche as one of this fine country's best live acts... The boys have paid their dues and are now searching Rock n Roll's pockets for the key to the gate with release of their sophmore album Drama Queen in March. Drama Queen features 10 riff dunking, drama infused melody-dripping tunes of Love, Death and Threesomes.
Rumoured to be from Taihape Autozamm's on-stage shenanigans have got to the point "where I don't think Ill ever be able to look my mother in the eye again," confesses Nick.
Jordan Luck from the Exponents
As frontman and pop-writing genius with the (legendary) Exponents and The Rock'n'Roll Circus, he clocked up a staggering 18 Top 40 singles over the years, with 'Victoria' recently voted by public as the 8th greatest New Zealand song of all time.
Luck is the band that Jordan has assembled to carry on the torch of his pop-writing gift. Hand-picked from a wish-list of players he wanted to work with, Jordan found that he didn't need to look further than the first four on his list.
The Naked And The Famous
Auckland's The Naked And Famous are named after a line from a Tricky song, and based around the ferociously talented pairing of composer/control freak Thom Powers and vocal siren/lyricist Alisa Xayalith, though they operate as a four piece live.
The stage name and acronym of Auckland born and based singer, songwriter, musician and producer Sean James Donnelly. He is a uniquely New Zealand artist who has released four albums of his own compositions since 1999. His most recent album 'Songs From A Dictaphone' received overwhelming accolades from the media and chart recognition upon its release.
Sarah, like many artists, developed her vocal skills singing along to backing tapes and at the age of 12 she recorded her first demo. By 14 Sarah has become frustrated at the thought of singing other people's songs and decided to put all her energy into releasing her own music.
During the past 12 months Sarah has supported Jamie Cullum during his sellout New Zealand concert, Tim Finn, Greg Johnson and played for top NZ Fashion Designer Trelise Cooper and her guests at the label's NZ Fashion Week event.
In a career that has seen him spin professionally for nearly twenty years, Sam Hill has performed at the most prestigious events, and infamous clubs in the history of New Zealand club culture.
Sam has played alongside international DJs; Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold, Basement Jaxx, Eric Morillo, Grooverider, M-People, Norman Jay, Axwell, Infusion, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and many, many more.
