Port Noise

PORT NOISE FESTIVAL 2024

SATURDAY 9 MARCH

Showcasing a diverse and curated selection of artists at the forefront of alternative arts within Aotearoa and abroad, Port Noise is an annual music festival like no other.

Port Noise transforms the car park and courtyard that connects three neighbouring venues in Ōhinehou, including the iconic Wunderbar, to deliver the best local cuisine, beverages, and music.

American drag-rap performance artist gone lush Mediterranean cowboy, Mykki Blanco will be joining the bill. Alongside will be the mesmerisingly brittle group built from members of The Dirty Three and Mckisko, Mess Esque, and Melbourne-based disco-shredding indie pop sensations, Cool Sounds.

As well as these overseas travellers, we have Flying Nun jangle alumni The Bats, psychedelic buzz-boppers Soaked Oats, celestial beat messengers Clear Path Ensemble, fevered avant-garage trio Coolies, opera-dungeon-techno-sludge oufit Grecco Romank, downbeat soul-style MC Mā, aliencore trip-hop collaborators PollyHill x Samara Alofa, ground-dwelling fuzz-rockers Wurld Series, Oamaru grog-rockers Cuticles, Ōhinehou local hip-hop legend Kommi, and the debut of the modular polyrhythmic era-bending Worldwide Panopticon.

Not to mention our late night kick-ons featuring the Big Fresh Collective Takeover, Borrowed CS, and Craigslist DJs.
