La De Da Festival Final Line-Up
La De Da is proud to release the second and final line-up announcement for 2011/12's premier New Year's Eve Festival.
Starting on Friday 30 December with Lullaby Lane, the official campground of La De Da, the festival stretches over 48 hours providing ticket holders with the ultimate New Years Eve soundtrack. The 2011/12 artist line-up represents the best of the musical crop from both here and overseas.
Returning from his sold out New Zealand shows earlier this year, the Wu Tang Clan's GZA/The Genius is set to headline Lullaby Lane on 30 December. Helping him set the tone is one of the finest collections of hip hop artists to grace our shores in over a decade: Pharoahe Monch, the mighty vocal machine that is Rahzel (formerly of The Roots) as well as the world renowned skills of Femme Fatale, Jean Grae.
Dubstep heavyweights Optimus Gryme and Mt Eden Dubstep are set to fire up the all new Electronic Stage, along with a massive mix of international DJ names, including ChasingShadows (HENCH Records, UK), Roksonix (Circus Records, UK), Zomboy (Never Say Die Records, UK), KOAN Sound (Hospital Records, UK), and B-Complex (Hospital Records, Slovakia),
This year sees the welcome return of electronic pop maestro's Kids Of 88, Zowie, Kidz In Space and Computers Want Me Dead. Rounding out the night is the finest in local dubstep, drum 'n bass and glitch hop with Truth, Trei and Opiuo keeping things going until the early hours.
This incredible line-up joins the already-announced bill for La De Da on Saturday 31 December of Six60, Fat Freddy's Drop, Kora, State of Mind Live, Dub FX, Donavon Frankenreiter, Katchafire, The Upbeats, Sola Rosa, Skism, Blue King Brown, Iva Lamkum, Concord Dawn and Dodge and Fuski.
Festival Co-Promoter Josh Mossman says "We have been working on this lineup for over a year now, and to have international acts of this scale at La De Da in only our second year is pretty exciting both for the La De Da team, and the ticket holders that are going to get to see it live, we have something pretty special in store for them this year. Our new site is going to blow people's minds, and coupled with the stage, sound and lighting setup we have planned; it's going to be a New Year's Eve to remember!'
La De Da boasts larger scale production this year with more space, more stages and more acts, so has moved to the fresh new location of Dry River Road in Martinborough to accommodate for the higher quality festival.
Accommodation will again be available at the festival's onsite campground, Lullaby Lane.
