Broods, Kings & Theia Are Coming To A Beach Near You This Summer For 'Electric Coastline'
Some of our favourite kiwi artists are joing forces for an INSANE tour, which is coming to a beach near you this summer.
Presented by ZM, Electric Coastline will be headlined by the chart-topping, award-winning duo Broods, with support from breakthrough sensation Kings and emerging glitter-pop darling Theia.
Making its debut in December and January, the touring mini festival stops off in four popular hot spots along New Zealand’s magical coastline. And with electrifying live sets from three of the country’s hottest acts right now, Electric Coastline promises to be the party you just cannot miss this summer.
It kicks off at Cooks Reserve, Riwaka, near Nelson on December 26, before heading north to the Mangawhai Tavern on January 3, and making its way down toCoroglen Tavern near Whitianga on January 4 and ending at ASB Bay Park Arena in Mount Maunganui on January 5.
Broods will return from their base in LA for the four-date tour, which rounds off a triumphant year for siblings Georgia and Caleb Nott, who hail from Nelson. They’ve enjoyed phenomenal success with their sophomore album CONSCIOUS, wowed with a killer performance on the Late Late Show With James Corden and sold out tours across New Zealand, Australia and the US.
They will be joined by one of New Zealand’s biggest success stories in 2016, the mighty Kings.
After making a mark in 2015 with his Dan Aux collab ‘Sippin’ Yak’, Kings went on to take the nation by storm with his infectious Gold tune 'Don't Worry Bout It', which this year spent 14 weeks at #1 in the local charts. Auckland-based Kings also gets two nods at this year’s VNZMA, with nominations for ‘Single of the Year’ and ‘Breakthrough Artist of the Year’. Kings’ self-titled debut EP is due out on November 25, includes the new single, ‘What We Supposed To Do’.
Completing the all-star line-up is one of this country’s newest emerging talents,Theia. The Christchurch singer-songwriter made her debut in 2015 with the electro-pop-meets-sultry-R’n’B track ‘Silver Second’, which caught the attention of US tastemaker music blogs Hillydilly and Pigeons & Planes. Theia is now riding high on the success of her summer anthem ‘Roam’, which clocked more than 1 million plays on Spotify in just six weeks and saw her enter the Global Viral Chart, the US Viral Chart, the Australian Viral Chart and top the NZ Viral Chart.
Tickets for the Electric Coastline shows are on sale Thursday October 27 at 12pm from www.ticketmaster.co.nz and the venues (except Riwaka – no venue sales).
