The big dance in the bright lights of Auckland just got brighter, with the return of GOLDEN LIGHTS MUSIC FESTIVAL, held across 2 days on the expansive outer fields of Waitakere’s Trusts Arena, on Thursday, Jan 4 2024 and Friday, January 5 2024.
JUST ADDED. One of Britain’s most in-demand music artists, BECKY HILL, will be adding more firepower to the Drum and Bass triple billing on Friday, Jan 5.
☝️ DAY ONE - THU, JAN 4 2024
PEGGY GOU, FOALS, A-TRAK, HALF QUEEN, AUNTY EL b2b BECCIE B
Day One features a headline NZ debut performance from global superstar, Berlin based, Korean born fashion icon and producer PEGGY GOU. An icon of club culture and fashion, her global hit “(It Goes Like) Nanana” continues to take the world by storm, amassing over 175 million streams on Spotify alone. Fans can expect a full extended set from one of the hottest acts in the world. UK indie rock heroes FOALS make their triumphant return after their recent sold out Town Hall appearance, bringing their stable (sorry) of hits including “Your Number”, “2am” and “Mountain at My Gates”. A-TRAK will have the Golden Lights dance floor bouncing from the outset. DJ for the stars (Kanye West’s former tour DJ), world champion turntablist and responsible for some of the dance floors most iconic club remixes (Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Off With Your Heads” I mean COME ON!), his return to New Zealand has been a long time coming. Day one also features local performances to get the day pumping from genre bending HALF QUEEN and a very special set of sets from AUNTY EL b2b BECCIE B.
✌️ DAY TWO - FRI, JAN 5 2024
BECKY HILL, SUB FOCUS DJ SET & ID, WILKINSON FT MC AD-APT, ISOXO, KNOCK2, EMWA
Brace yourself for Day Two of Golden Lights with some of the biggest names in Drum and Bass tipped to close out the festival. BECKY HILL’s star is rising, from her 13x Platinum, 11x Gold and 14x Silver records, through to her recent appearance on Love Island. She was the third most streamed British female solo artist on Spotify in 2021, behind only Dua Lipa and Adele. WILKINSON has cemented himself as one of the most successful stars in global dance music, and certainly continues to be a Kiwi favourite with hits such as “Afterglow” “Used to This” and his latest anthem “Here for You”. SUB FOCUS has been flying the D&B flag for over a decade, smashing out arena tours and main stage festival sets across the globe. His first breakout hit “Tidal Wave” sent Drum and Bass music into the mainstream and helped pave the way for many. Sub Focus is currently touring off the release of his third full-length solo album - “Evolve”. Combining with his good friend and frequent collaborator Mark Wilkinson, expect an electric end to the Golden Lights festival from two of the best in the business. Big bass and trap breakouts ISOXO and KNOCK2 are also confirmed for their New Zealand debut performances. Electronic music website sums up their performances best - “The high-octane music matched with feverishly charged crowd energy is one thing, but the passion and stage presence these two producers encapsulate is really something else.”. Local leading bass producer EMWA will also be performing on the main stage at Golden Lights to round off the massive Golden Lights lineup.
