The Electronica/Drum ‘n’ Bass Heavyweights Announce Headline Dates for New Zealand


Friday, 16 October – Town Hall, Auckland
Saturday, 17 October – Town Hall, Christchurch
Saturday, 24 October – Black Barn, Hawkes Bay
Saturday, 16 January – Cargo Brewery, Queenstown


Kiwi drum ‘n’ bass party-starters SHAPESHIFTER have announced a run of headline shows for fans in Auckland, Christchurch and Hawkes Bay this October plus Queenstown in January 2021.

Tickets to Hawkes Bay and Queenstown go onsale at 8 am Wednesday, June 17. Tickets for Auckland and Christchurch go on sale at 12 pm Thursday, June 25. Go to SHAPESHIFTER.CO.NZ for all ticketing info.

Following up on record-breaking tours of New Zealand, the future-shocked soul outfit will perform relatively intimate shows at Auckland and Christchurch Town Hall’s on October 16 and 17 respectively and at Hawkes Bay Black Barn Amphitheatre on October 24.

2021 will see the act travel to Cargo Brewery in Queenstown for a special one-off performance January 16.

SHAPESHIFTER’s music is crafted by a living, breathing band of musicians, with all the form-changing sonic possibilities live instrumentation offers. The five-strong lineup of P.Digsss (vocals), Sam Trevethick (guitar/synths/sampler), Dan McGruer (synths/sampler), Nick Robinson (bass/synths/MPC) and Darren Mathiassen (drums) have created their very own heavy soul; a stadium-sized sound which adds layers of drum & bass, jazz, funk, rock and electronica to solid bass culture foundations.

Off the grid and out of this world, from the clubs to packed festival fields, Shapeshifter’s transcendent sound has already seen them achieve extraordinary things. Record-breaking New Zealand tours, scene-setting appearances at festivals like Glastonbury, The Big Chill, Big Day Out and Parklife, sold-out performances across Europe, multiple music awards, four EPs and five LPs — three with platinum sales — and an army of fans who return to relive the experience time and time again. These are just some of Shapeshifter’s towering achievements.

It’s time to celebrate, New Zealand! Don’t miss the super-sized sound from SHAPESHIFTER – touring nationally this October and January.
