Beacon Festival 2021
Electronic acts by way of the UK, USA and New Zealand will be performing at this one-day waterfront festival.
Friendly Potential's Beacon Festival was one of the last festivals to take place in 2020 before the country was thrown into lockdown. The inaugural edition of the festival saw 3000 dancers take over Auckland's iconic waterfront to catch an international lineup of electronic music.
Returning on Saturday, 27 March, 2021 for its second outing, the openair celebration will feature acts by way of the UK, USA and New Zealand, all performing with a generous dose of fresh ocean breeze.
Although the festival landscape has fundamentally changed over the past year, organiser have still managed to cherry-pick some of the most adventurous and renowned artists around. Beacon Festival 2021 will feature the debut New Zealand performance from Detroit disco and boogie hero Marcellus Pittman. Also coming in over international waters for the event will be UK figurehead Ben UFO.
Flying the New Zealand flag will be an exquisite lineup of DJs, selectors and party starters, including Aw B, Bbyfacekilla, Chaos in the CBD, Eden Burns, Frank Booker, Misa and Nice Girl, with more to be announced.
