Do you like spending your Friday afternoon sitting in the sun, sipping on a beer/cider/non-alcoholic beverage of your choice and listening to some of the best music and up and coming artists that New Zealand has to offer? Of course you do.
AUSA has teamed up with everyone’s favourite campus radio station 95bFM to bring you 95bFM Bands in the Park! On the last day of O-Week, head over to Albert Park to experience the best in homegrown music, and see Orientation off in style! Best of all, IT’S COMPLETELY FREE.
We’re so excited to announce that headlining the day will be Wellington giants THE PHOENIX FOUNDATION. The Phoenix Foundation have been performing and producing music together for nearly 15 years. As one of New Zealand’s most accomplished acts, they have either won or been nominated for every music industry award NZ has to offer.
With a career releasing and performing such a diverse range of music they appeal to any demographic. Their recent releases of Give Up Your Dreams, Fandango and Buffalo, have seen them receive high acclaim from publications such as Mojo, Q, Uncut, NME and The Guardian. BBC Radio Personalities such as Lauren Laverne and Jarvis Cocker are fans. They have performed on stages around the globe from ‘…Later with Jools Holland’ (BBC TV) to The Big Day Out to Glastonbury.
