One of the most ambitious stage designs ever made in Aotearoa will host performances by drum and bass artists Whiney, P Money, Mollie Collins, Tsuki, and more. Mayhem Open Air kicks off at 4:00 PM, and event planners SUB180 will also host an afterparty on the same day! Tickets for the event are powered by Ticket Fairy.
Mayhem Festival New Zealand announced its return in September 2022 for what is sure to be an epic night of bass! Addington Raceway & Events Center will be the venue for the Mayhem Open Air, with a maximum attendance cap of 3000 people. It is a premier multifunctional racing and events venue in New Zealand and dates back to the 1930s, which was initially conceived to host harness racing events.
A stellar lineup of local and international performers has been assembled by SUB180 for one of their biggest shows ever. The stage for the event has been produced by the stage designer of the British Boomtown festival, renowned for its elaborate and unique set designs.
Commencing at 4:00 PM, Mayhem Open Air is plugged with hourly performances from some of the finest artists in the drum and bass scene. Kicking off the event is Christchurch-based Georgia ‘Geo’ Wallace, who was recently added to SUB180’s One Eighty Artists roster.
He will be followed by a Deep Notion b2b set with CSM, for the first time in Christchurch. Following the announcement, CSM expressed on social media, “Another show added to the schedule and this one is looking huge! B2b with my bro @deep_notion for the second time ever, this time on a much bigger stage 🤤 .Cannot wait to share the stage with such amazing internationals in the dnb capital of NZ 😈”
