Karangahape Road’s beloved grassroots music festival The Others Way returns this Friday 30th August to Tamaki Makaurau for another night of music and good vibes. The Others Way have today revealed the first artist lineup for 2019, with more to be announced over the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more Others Way news on Flying Out’s
Facebook and Instagram.

The Others Way is proud to see another year of gloriously eclectic artistry in 2019’s first artist lineup. It wouldn’t be an Others Way Festival without appearances from some NZ music royalty. Celebrated acts The Chills, Straitjacket Fits and Blam Blam Blam return to the stage for a ripper run through their beloved catalogues. It has been a big year for both The Chills and Straitjacket Fits with the release of a documentary (The Chills: The Triumph & Tragedy of Martyn Phillipps) and an autobiography (Shayne Carter's 'Dead People I Have Known'); both critically-lauded pieces of work.

Celebrating the future of kiwi music, rap prodigies Church & AP, Chaii and Shiraz & LSJ are bound to bring the house down with their captivating performances. Bang your head guts out to Long Distance Runner, The Echo Oh’s, Dog Power, Contenders and more. Introverted souls can be soothed by the earthy sounds of Bailey Wiley and the swirling, hypnotic tones of Mermaidens, or the engrossing sound waves of Creme Jean. Wordsmith enchantress Being. and soon to be everyone’s favourite truth-tellers Bad Timing will steal your hearts and leave with you lots to think about.

Plus, joining the local lineup are American indie cult-figures Chris Cohen and John Maus, rounding off what is already an exciting lineup - but stay tuned for more over the coming weeks!
