Another Night of Drum & Bass XL (ANODNB) ropes in a colossal five-night showcase across New Zealand! Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton, and Wellington will be overrun by artists Mefjus, Enei & Jakes, and Skeptical as they flood stages with the sounds of unadulterated drum & bass. Day 1 kicks off on Thursday, April 20, and runs through April 2023. Get your tickets to ANODNB Festival from The Ticket Fairy.
Audiology’s Another Night of Drum & Bass, a staple in the New Zealand electronic music scene, has cobbled together a line-up of the most touted international and local DnB acts for this years edition! Austrian music producer Mefjus (Martin Schober) travels to Aotearoa, flanked by DnB producer Enei, MC Jakes, and DJ and producer Skeptical. UK’s Nick Baxter aka Skeptical returns to the land down under with a couple of gigs in Australia as part of his tour. Sigma & MC Dynamite were originally slated to perform at ANODNB but later pulled out.
