New Zealand Takes Center Stage at The Great Escape 2024

The anticipation is building as New Zealand's finest musical talents gear up to make their mark on The Great Escape 2024. Hosted by the New Zealand Music Commission, this showcase event is set to be a highlight of the festival, featuring four exceptional artists ready to captivate audiences with their unique sounds.

First up is Kylie Price, the captivating songstress blending the scenic essence of New Zealand with the vibrant spirit of the Philippines. Seamlessly transitioning from Country to Pop, Kylie's emotive lyricism and infectious hooks have garnered chart-topping success in her homeland.

Next on the lineup is DARTZ, the irreverent pub-punks whose fast-paced anthems and razor-sharp lyrics have earned them a devoted following. With their second album 'Dangerous Day To Be A Cold One' debuting at #1 on the NZ album charts, DARTZ are ready to bring their unique brand of garage rock to the international stage.

Also gracing the stage is TOM LARK, whose indie sensibilities and sunburnt psychedelic folk are sure to enchant audiences. With a collection of collaborators that includes Merk, Randa, and A.C. Freezy, TOM LARK's music is a testament to the creativity and diversity of the New Zealand music scene.

Rounding out the lineup is EARTH TONGUE, the heavy psych-rock duo whose fuzz-smothered riffs and off-kilter drumming have earned them high praise from BBC 6 Music and beyond. With extensive European festival appearances and their first shows in the US on the horizon, EARTH TONGUE is ready to take the world by storm.

Don't miss your chance to experience the best of New Zealand music at The Great Escape 2024. With doors opening at 12 pm and performances kicking off at 12:30 pm, this is one showcase you won't want to miss.
