Christchurch will once again stage the South Island's biggest multi-stage festival featuring:
Buzzcocks are still playing loud & fast, like guys half their age! The South Island will be treated to UK pop-punk heroes on their first Mainland visit at Southern Amp since they formed in the heady punk days of 1978 and created a thousand imitators world-over.

Kora are without doubt one of NZ most exciting live bands of the past 5 years. A combo of “heavy-metal-dub-funk-blues,” they are known for delivering blistering live sets that send their thousands of fans in NZ, Australia and beyond absolutely wild.

Salmonella Dub have been exciting thousands of grooving fans with their infectious live performances on countless tours and major festivals around the world since 1994. They are without doubt one of NZ’s most influential Dub/Reggae & Roots acts of all time. (Website – www.salmonelladub.com | Myspace – www.myspace.com/officialsalmonelladub )
Grinspoon have been a music festival favourite and a mainstay on the Australian music scene for close on 15 years. Led by controversial frontman Phil Jamieson, they have built a massive following through endless touring and thumping rock shows.

The Veils return to Southern Amp after touring the globe twice over since their last appearance in 2007. With their 3rd superb album ‘Sun Gangs’ released this year, the UK-via-New Zealand quartet and their striking frontman Finn Andrews are the best kind of live-set theatre around and every live set seems fraught with unanticipated intimate danger! A terrifyingly brilliant live act not to be missed.

Mammal from Melbourne are like a power generator on overload! They have so much energy in their playing and live shows that you cannot help but get swept up in it. With a mix of influences from Rollins to Rage Against The Machine filtering through their visceral, chaotic, bass-led sound, Mammal visit the south for the first time at Southern Amp after their first headline tour to UK has brought rave reviews.

An Emerald City NZ’s Psychedelic explorers return home after an eventful summer in Europe to bring their explosive and unique live show to Southern Amp. 2009 marked the release of their debut album ‘Circa Scaria’ recorded in an isolated west coast cave. They’ve since been based in Berlin touring Europe and creating wondrous new sounds.
