North West Country Manager Phelan Pirrie says the festival has become one of the most anticipated events in the region. “The festival gets more popular every year, and with the 2020 line-up I think we’ll sell out even quicker than last year.  We’re looking forward to showcasing the best of the North West Country has to offer to people from around the greater Auckland region.”

The Mutton Birds frontman Don McGlashan says “It’s a huge thrill to be taking flight with the Mutton Birds again next Summer. Whenever we play together, something strange and beautiful happens.”

“It’s like pulling out a coat that you haven’t worn for a while, but it still fits uncannily well, and suddenly you feel like you could leap tall buildings.”
