Benee and Fat Freddy's Drop lead the first lineup of this new festival.
Western Springs' outer fields last hosted the likes of Snoop Dogg, Major Lazer and Grace Jones for final instalments of the Big Day Out and Auckland City Limits. In March, a new festival named after the outdoor venue will host a stacked lineup of local acts who have all had substantial international plans curtailed in 2020.
The debut outing of Outerfields 2021 will be headlined by Benee and Fat Freddy's Drop, with fellow big-name artists Aldous Harding, The Beths, Ladyhawke and Montell2099 also taking the stage across the 12-hour festival.
Up and coming acts including rap duo Church & AP, soul-pop artist Paige and singer/songwriter Harper Finn complete the lineup. Sustenance will be provided by a selection of food trucks, while artist installations will bring further life to the open green fields and tree-lined slopes.
Outerfields 2021 has a firm postponement date of 4 December, 2021 due to COVID-19.
