With a second announcement still to come Northern Bass 15/16 is shaping up to cement its position as a must see fixture on NZ’s event calendar.
“Getting to see Shapeshifter perform on the Northern Bass main stage has been a long term goal of mine,” says festival director Gareth Popham. “We can’t wait to see how all of these artists make their mark on Northern Bass!”
This year also sees Northern Bass move to a three-day festival format, with the addition of an extra night of entertainment and camping on the 29th December.
“The idea of adding the 29th came after we received requests came from a large portion of our audience to extend their Northern Bass experience” Popham continues.
The Jungle Stage will open from 2pm – 10pm, with a special selection of artists to create the perfect vibe before kicking off Movie Night in The Jungle.
And last but certainly not least, expect to see a focus on sustainability and environmental awareness at Northern Bass 15/16 as the event rolls out new initiatives aimed to combat the impact of waste, abandoned camping equipment and to encourage recycling and choosing reusable products.
