October 31, 2023
New Zealand's stacked summer concert schedule is filling up fast, and we've got a new one to add to your list: Golden Lights Music Festival 2024. Returning to Auckland for its third year, Golden Lights will fall at a magic time of the summer — you've recovered from your New Year's blowout, but you're not yet back at work so you're ready to keep the party going.
The event's full lineup has just been announced, with the January festival set to be held at Outdoor Fields in Henderson's Trusts Arena, running across two days on Thursday, January 4–Friday, January 5.
Day one of the festival will see the first-ever New Zealand performance for Peggy Gou, as well as UK's Foals and Canadian DJ A-Trak. Joining this jam-packed first day will be Park Rd, an Auckland-based indie-rock band made up of schoolmates Tom Chamberlain, Angus Hampton-Carr, Leo Crawshaw-Bond on guitar, Carlos Martin and Te Kapua Pene.
Day two will be headlined by Sub Focus with a DJ set, as well as his mate Wilkinson. Joining the pair are up-and-coming trap artists ISOxo and Knock2.Wrapping it all up is EMWA, an Auckland-born and -bred DJ. Finally, Golden Lights has just announced the addition of Becky Hill to the day two lineup, the UK rising star who some Kiwis may recognise from her iconic performance on Love Island.
