Festival Details - "CubaDupa 2021"...

On the 27th and 28th of March 2021, CubaDupa will be back! Returning to the streets in all its glory, CubaDupa will interrupt your regular weekend schedule with it’s most ambitious programme yet. Join us for the most diverse and creative event on the calendar, where everyone brings out their inner CubaDupa and comes together to reset their frequency. All of New Zealand is invited to CubaDupa, which has a diverse free music programme covering almost every genre, from orchestral to Maori dub grooves, second-line brass to breakbeat, and indie rock to post-punk. Multi-award winning musician Troy Kingi will hit the stage with a high-energy ‘best of’ set, while NZ based US siblings Deva Mahal, Zoe Moon, and Imon Starr have combined their singing, playing and songwriting talents to form Blue-Reggae band, Black Pacific. Local indie legends Hans Pucket will perform their pure power-pop hits with a full horn section, and emerging local rockers H4LF CAST will chug through their bangers; hot on the trail to release their debut album in 2021. Alongside the 20 stages, there’s an abundance of parades, street theatre, and art installations. Happing once each day, CubaSonic is a mass musical interruption conceived by New Zealand’s leading composer, John Psathas. It boasts twelve conductors above the crowd, a custom sound system and over 300 musicians lining the street, including Orchestra Wellington, Royal New Zealand Air Force Band, The Nudge, Boat and nearly 100 Batucada drummers. Back again for 2021 is the Mammoth circus tent, presents energetic performances and workshops by day, and saucy cabaret shows by night. New for 2021 is the RadioActive Upper Cuba SoundSphere, with an abundance of dance music, street theatre and art activations. Among the many experiences waiting for you at the RadioActive Upper Cuba SoundSphere, there is the Shabby Salon, where you can get a drop-dead gorgeous makeover and your own faux funeral, and The Ping Pong Party People, with their ultimate table tennis championship rave. Interrupt your regular weekend schedule, and join us at New Zealand’s most creative and diverse festival. CubaDupa 2021!
