One-Night, Clash-Free Festival FOMO Is Back for Its Second Year

Australia's clash-free festival is jumping the ditch next January.

Australia's clash-free, one-day summer festival FOMO By Night made its New Zealand debut in January featuring famed American-Trinidadian rapper Nicki Minaj. The one-stage festival is set to return in 2020, this time under the simplified FOMO heading and at a new outdoor location to make it "much bigger and better," according to organisers.

Texas-via-California rap collective Brockhampton is just the first of multiple international acts to be announced for the event at Henderson's Trusts Arena on Wednesday, 15 January. Led by Kevin Abstract, and formed through an online Kayne forum, the modern-day boy band is made up of rappers, directors, photographers, engineers, producers, graphic designers and DJs. The group last performed here in 2018 at Logan Campbell Centre — the show sold out in minutes.

Further international and local acts are still to be announced.

The second edition of FOMO will take place at Trusts Arena on Wednesday, 15 January, 2020. It is an R16 licensed event. The first release of general admission pre-sale tickets will be available from 9am on Wednesday, 12 June until 9am Wednesday, 26 June, unless sold out prior. You can register here.
