The Chills, Bella Kalolo and Alae booked for Marchfest 2020

28 November 2019 - 0 Comments

The 13th Marchfest craft beer and music festival is starting to take shape as the main music acts have been announced.

The joint headline acts are Kiwi legends, The Chills and Pacifica Soul Queen Bella Kalolo, with her band Atmos. Strong support will be provided by Alae, the band that features Nelson’s Alex Farrell-Davey and Allister Meffan, Canada’s Everlovin’ Jug Band and local acts Estella and Bosho.

Co-organiser Mic Dover said, “I’m a huge fan of the late Sharon Jones (of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings) and Bella is right in that mould – divine soul and funk. We’ve been trying to book Bella for several years and at last she’s going to play Marchfest!”

Co-organiser Eelco Boswijk added, “Getting The Chills has been another longtime wish, so Mic and I are really looking forward to next year’s bash – now we just need to choose the 15 breweries for the 2020 beer menu!”

On the craft beer front, Marchfest has again invited breweries from outside the region to brew a new beer for the event, to complement the local breweries of the Top of the South. Successful breweries include Nelson newcomers The Workshop, Wilderness and Volstead from Christchurch, Fork Brewcorp and Garage Project from Wellington and Rhyme and Reason from Wanaka.

As well as great music and great beers, there will be a tasting bar, brewing demonstrations, a food and beer matching lunch, children’s entertainment, delicious foods, local ciders and wines and much more.

Earlybird tickets go on sale on Dec 1st for the event which takes place on Sat March 14, 2020 at Founders Park, Nelson.
