After the smash success of Bay Dreams 2017, with tickets selling out two months in advance, ZM has announced the first line-up for Mt. Maunganui’s Bay Dreams 2018 – and it’s certainly been worth the wait.
The first day is being headlined by French DJ and producer of hits like Middle and Let Me Love You, DJ Snake, along with the infamous drum and bass ensemble Pendulum, and the indie pop sensations, Foster the People, who will no doubt be showcasing their latest album, Sacred Hearts Club.
Bay Dreams 2018 also boasts the company of Ocean Alley, Flatbush Zombies and one of our favourite acts of the year, the lovely and captivating Theia.
While the event will be taking place once again at Baypark in Mt. Maunganui, the layout will be updated and likely more spacious and comfortable for punters. Additionally, a new aspect of Bay Dreams 2018 is the arrival of what is called Dream City, a bonus bit of camping, entertainment and fun.
The infamous pre-party will also be taking place on January 1, and promoters have promised to share more info about the details of the event in the coming weeks. Until then, though, keep an eye out on the Bay Dreams website or their Facebook page which will tease more exciting news over the next few months – and make sure to nab your tickets as early as possible so you don’t miss out!
