Nostalgia’s marketplace is set to exhibit a wide range of arts, crafts, jewelry, apparel, and accessories to complement the music. A variety of food stalls will be set up to serve the best gourmet burgers, Indian, Italian, and Japanese cuisine, as well as desserts and baked goods. Sustainability is one of Nostalgia’s core values, and the showcase promotes the use of reusable cups and cutlery to reduce and control waste generation. The organizers also encourage festival-goers to carpool to the festival, use public transportation, and participate in the Slow Roll Bike Ride – a bicycle ride out to Nostalgia Festival.
We spoke with Mim Jenson and Kendall Elise prior to their performance at Nostalgia Festival on February 11, and here’s what they had to say!
“I’ve been so excited about playing at this festival and I feel so honored to play alongside so many other amazing talents! I think Nostalgia is an awesome festival and I’m so stoked to be on the lineup. This is probably going to be the biggest crowd I’ve played to, so that’s super exciting. It’s going be an amazing day and I really can’t wait!”– Mim Jensen
“After having to cancel my South Island tour in October due to a snowstorm, I’m so excited to finally be coming back to Otautahi to play Nostalgia Festival! It’s doubly awesome to be playing at Ferrymead, where the old-timey music video for my song ‘Honest Hand’ was filmed. I’m stoked to be on a bill with so many established and up-and-coming artists like Don McGlashan, Reb Fountain, Mousey, Adam Hattaway, and The Haunters – Plus so many more! Expect a set roaming the range from soul-stirring country-gothic ballads to full-blown barnstormers. See you there!”– Kendall Elise
