TrinityRoots leads the first ever trans-Tasman line-up for next year’s Nostalgia Festival in Christchurch.
Sponsored this time by Cassels & Sons, the event has previously featured only homegrown acts. However, the 2019 edition will see the rejuvenated TrinityRoots joined by Aussie acts Mama Kin Spender and C.W Stoneking as headliners.
Nostalgia Festival takes place every year at Ferrymead Heritage Park’s 1990s replica township and the 2019 event marks six years since then-25-year-old Johnny Gibson founded it as a way to bring more vitality to Christchurch summers.
“Nostalgia’s values are simple,” Gibson says. “Our goal is to create a unique festival that brings the Christchurch community together to celebrate collaboration, creativity, great food and drink, quality music and sustainability. Nostalgia aims to create maximum enjoyment with minimal environmental impact. We’re continuously working towards implementing and trialing new sustainable initiatives so we can all enjoy a special day without burdening the planet.”
As well as Trinity Roots, other homegrown acts confirmed for the the festival include The Beths, The Miltones, Holly Arrowsmith and Soaked Oats.
