As part of the Auckland Arts Festival Canadian DJ collective, A Tribe Called Red will be playing down at the Festival Playground alongside Tiki Taane and Ria Hall.

A Tribe Called Red is making an impact on the global electronic scene with a truly unique sound. Producing a lively mixture of modern hip-hop, traditional pow-wow drums and vocals, and edgy electronica, the group also operates as a champion of First Nations rights.

Their upbeat and fast-tempo sound will get your pulse racing and your mind moving around their message of inclusivity, empathy, and acceptance amongst all races and genders in the name of social justice.

Dub legend, frontman of Salmonella Dub and record-breaking solo artist, Tiki Taane is a pioneer of New Zealand the music scene. His diverse talents span not only dub-step, reggae, drum ‘n’ bass, hip-hop and pop/rock, but beyond as an activist and orator. Tiki brings his charismatic live performance to the Festival Playground along with the kapa haka group, Te Pou o Mangatawhiri.

A blazing force in New Zealand music, Ria Hall is freethinking, edgy and unapologetic. With a brand new album that fuses her powerhouse voice amidst rich textural landscapes and multiple genres, Ria has collaborated extensively with a diverse range of artists, including Fly My Pretties, Tiki Taane, and Electric Wire Hustle.
