Silo Park is excited to announce that the Rice & Beans Festival will be taking over Wynyard Quarter for a one-off, eclectic mish-mash of music, culture, art and food.
Offering discerning Aucklanders fantastic free entertainment in their own backyard, the Rice & Beans Festival is the perfect family outing. Visitors can grab a bite to eat then settle in for an afternoon of South American tunes from an epic south of the border line-up.
Stinky Jim will kick things off at 12pm, getting the crowd in the mood with the freshest reggae, dancehall and reggae; followed by Sandy Bay Social Club, Jah Red Lion and Latinaotearoa. Things will heat up in the evening with New York DJ, Nickodemus, who will explore the intersection of urban and world music with the sounds of funk jazz hip-hop house and dub, and Tamenpi, all the way from Rio de Janeiro.
It’s promised to be an afternoon of the very best tunes, browsing every style from soul funk, jazz, reggae, Brazilian music, afrobeat, downtempo, and everything in between. The perfect way to while away a sunny February afternoon.
