The Others Way boasts an incredible roster of Aotearoa’s most exciting, fresh and favoured music, thanks to our friends at Flying Out and 95bFM.
Today, the second lineup has been announced, making this festival an absolute must.
Salacious surf/psych-rock group King Loser (once so notorious they were banned from talking to the media) is rising from the ashes of the ‘90s Flying Nun era to deliver a set nothing short of rollocking. From b-grade Kung Fu to sexy swinging cabaret, King Loser bring their electrifying energy to The Others Way 2016 in their strongest lineup up of Celia Mancini, Chris Heazlewood, Tribal Thunder and Sean O’ Reilly.
Nadia Reid, whose debut album Listen To Formation, Look For The Signs has found ears all around the globe and seen Reid sell out shows across the UK & Europe.
Steve Abel, hot off the back of selling out his Auckland release show for his new LP Luck/Hope, and psych-pop outfit Sleepers Union, featuring members of Loves Ugly Children, The Subliminals, Psychic Maps and Stereobus.
Salad Boys head North from their hometown of Christchurch to charm crowds with their effervescent indie-pop, their 2015 album Metalmania still ringing fresh in our ears.
Hardcore punks Master Blaster, the unsound wails of teenage post-punk wunderkinder Yukon Era, and the psycho-country surf jams of The Echo Ohs join the list.
