The musician known for blending drum and bass, reggae, roots and other genres gave the audience his absolute all both nights – the fantastic crowds easily hearing just how his innovative style and sound significantly influences the NZ music scene and inspires other performers.

Beat Fairy Productions was proud to bring Tiki to town and are thrilled to announce that over $1,300 was raised for Coro Youth Mentors Inc. from the Friday night show.

The full crowd sang Tiki’s songs along with him in full voice, elevating and supporting his show.  DJ Axis (Rachel Taane) closed out both nights with a brilliant DJ set.  The bill included 3 local support acts. Beat Fairy loves to showcase our local musicians – DJ A-Young for both nights; local hip hop performer Chance C33Y with a special surprise appearance by Te Paea Seasons on Friday; and the fantastic Let’s Go Descarrego on Saturday had everyone on their feet dancing. Locals, Bong and Dave Rhodes ran the sound board brilliantly for the local acts and both crowds had an absolute best time.

This Friday for Matariki, performer Hollie Smith will be wowing a sold-out crowd.
