WHEN & WHERE
Friday, 11th September – K Road, Auckland
Flying Out is thrilled to confirm that beloved music event The Others Way music festival will return for a sixth consecutive year on Friday 11 September.
The annual multi-venue extravaganza is known for a line-up packed with emerging and established stars of the New Zealand music scene, and Flying Out’s Matthew Dais says it’s more important than ever for The Others Way to go ahead.
“It’s been tough year for Karangahape Road and the wider music community. We had to think very seriously about whether to go ahead with the festival this year, but concluded that the very best way to support bands, our local venues and the hospitality community is to put on a show,” Davis said.
“The Others Way has become a fixture on the calendar for music lovers as well as one of the busiest nights of the year for the venues and nearby bars and restaurants. Karangahape Road is going to be packed on the night of the festival which will be great for everyone.”
“There are over 40 acts set to play, and we know fans will be excited about making new discoveries and hearing from their favourites. We’ve got a strong line-up and we’ll be ready to share it very soon.”
The 2020 festival will take place across 14 venues including The Wine Cellar, Whammy Bar and Backroom, Neck of The Woods, Galatos and Galatos Basement, The Studio, Thirsty Dogs Tavern & Cafe, Audio Foundation as well as two new venues – Phoenix Cabaret and Monster Valley.
The Others Way also introduces a new all ages precinct on Pitt Street including Girls Rock Camp Stages, with a limited number of ages tickets available just for the all ages venues. Festival ticket holders can also use their wristbands to access these venues, allowing families the chances to see live music together.
