This Saturday venture down to Silo Park for markets, food and special performances from An Emerald City and Dictaphone Blues. This is the last date on their March tour of our fair country so don't miss it!

About the band:
Forming in late 2005 this New Zealand six-piece has a musical voice that combines Eastern traditional instruments and psychedelic leanings with experimentation and liberation. Instrumental, thoughtful songs created by guitars, drums, synths, keyboards, sitars, violins, a Persian long necked lute, daabuka, piano and percussion found from various reaches of the universe. Their debut EP of 2008 featured alt radio favourites Qing Song and A Question and the band’s reputation grew further in 2009 after the release of debut album Circa Scaria which was recorded in the great cave of Whatipu amongst the black sand of Auckland’s isolated west coast.

2009 was a big year for An Emerald City with stand out performances at the Auckland Big Day Out, sold-out album release shows and Circa Scaria receiving critical acclaim from some of New Zealand’s most respected music voices. The album spent several weeks in the New Zealand Top 40 album chart and the band continued to play memorable live shows and festival performances across the country.

Silo Markets will be open from midday curated by Foxes of Auckland with stalls from some of the finest local arts and crafts people plus an eclectic mix of food stalls and the pop-up container bar will also be open selling craft beer & local wine plus yummy food!

Free & family friendly.
