New Zealand’s live event whizzes Coastal Promotions is set to memorialize five years of operations by linking up with one of the most acclaimed labels in drum & bass, Hospital Records, for an epic Full Circle – 360° experience showcase! UK’s Unglued, Degs, Lens, and a slew of local artists will kick off the celebrations on May 19, 2023, at The Grand in Wellington. Get your tickets to the anniversary bash from The Ticket Fairy.
Hospital Records catapults electronic artists Unglued; singer, rapper, and multi-instrumentalist MC Degs; and music producer Lens (Ellen Lewin) on a sprightly drum & bass tour of Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. Announced in March, the electrifying trio will make stops in Singapore, Bangkok, Dunedin, Auckland, Melbourne, and Canberra, to list a few! Multi-genre producer Unglued (Josh Brown) hyped the tour on Instagram, saying, “Australia, NZ, and Asia we are coming back to impregnate your eardrums,” and dubbed the tour “A world domination with the gang.”

Friday, May 19, sees the UK artists take over The Grand for a high-octane drum & bass takeover! On the card are music producers Sam ‘NOS’ Jones, Joey Townsend aka Tonin, Kalo (Kieran Owers), Eight-Oh (Courtney Laosie), and the Coastal Collective. The night will witness b2b sets from Kalo and Eight-Oh, and Nos and Tonin.
We caught up with NOS, who weighed in on the gig, saying, “On May 19th, we will hit the ultimate trifecta, playing alongside hype man HP (mc) for the Hospital Records Wellington stop during their New Zealand tour, while the event is also held on Coastal Promotions 5th birthday. To celebrate the momentous achievement, the three of us have been working hard for weeks to produce the ultimate experience packed with flavourful, explosive music that’ll make the crowd want to sing their hearts out and bust a move!”
The DJ/producer also added, “The last two sets Joey (Tonin) and I have played have been nothing short of euphoric chaos, with playing our last two gigs being on support for international heavyweights Netsky and Kove.”
Established in 2018, Coastal Promotions has been barraging venues and driving festivals throughout Aotearoa. They are the brains behind Wellington’s open-air multi-genre music festival High Tide Festival and have presented acts such as Bru-C, Subsonic, and Montell 2099, in recent times. Soundscapes, a multi-genre live music experience with a focal point that exhibits a spectrum of sonics within one setting, was also launched by Coastal Promotions in 2023.
