Looking For Alaska

Dates: Friday 8 Jan

Hamilton indie-folk band Looking For Alaska released their new album 'Light and Shadow' this November, and are coming to the Dome this summer!

It's been 4 years since LFA's debut album was released, and in that time they've been busy touring NZ, Australia and Europe, and writing and developing the exciting new songs that feature on 'Light and Shadow.' The album has a much more mature, darker sound than anything you've heard from LFA before, reflecting the growth and maturity in the relationship between core members Amy Maynard and Aaron Gott.
Looking For Alaska are stoked to be returning to Gisborne for the first time in 3 years! Joined by their band, this night at the beautiful Dome Cinema is not one you want to miss!

Doors open at 7pm, music starts at 8pm. Presale tickets $15 from Eventfinda, door sales $20 on the night.

DANIEL CHAMPAGNE - The young Australian singer-songwriter and one of a kind virtuoso brings his world tour back home with new music!

Daniel has released four studio albums, and tours relentlessly around the
globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, playing some of the biggest festivals under the sun, and sharing stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for
dropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes.

“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he
coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary
Herald, CANADA

“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in the thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show- stopper.” The Firefly Column, USA

“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.”
