Banished Music are slip-slop-slapping with excitement to announce that the supreme summer series The Beach Ball is back, and bigger than ever!
The ultimate New Years Eve spot of Ōakura’s Butlers Reef, it’s the phenomenal one-two punch of Kiwi songwriting legend Sir Dave Dobbyn, and a homecoming welcome of mammoth proportions for indie darlings The Beths, ensuring The Beach Ball is the only place to be for your NYE moment.
Needing no introduction whatsoever, Sir Dave Dobbyn is nothing short of a household name in Aotearoa, with a career spanning four decades of stone cold classics. Expect crowd-pleasers galore as Sir Dobbo and his unbelievable band throw down the hits that earned him the royal nod of approval.
Fresh back for a victory lap after a year of seemingly endless touring across North America, the UK and Europe, The Beths have well and truly earned their stripes. Their effervescent indie rock anthems have seen them handpicked to tour with the likes of The National, The Postal Service and Death Cab For Cutie; praised unanimously by the likes of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and UPROXX; and earned them countless awards back home, including Rolling Stone Aotearoa’s 2023 Global Award. Expect nothing but “simply the Beths-t” with ridiculously memorable songs from their trio of flawless albums
