Two knockout concerts headline the 11th Titirangi Festival of Music between 8 and 10 April. The Black Seeds are first up at the Titirangi War Memorial Hall on Friday 8 April. Also on the bill is renowned DJ Manuel Bundy.
Then on Saturday 9 April is the legendary Dave Dobbyn and band, with support from Hopetoun Brown.
Collaborations this year include Te Uru, West Auckland’s own purpose built art gallery in the heart of Titirangi Village. Te Uru will host two significant performances on Friday 8 by Acapollinations, led by Tui Mamaki, and master musician Arli Liberman.
Classical music will also be well represented when the APO appear for the first time at the Festival to perform a selection of Beethoven pieces.
Family-friendly free music in such events as Village Day on the Saturday will be provided by local musicians, an art-workshop trail, marching bands and street performers from noon until early evening.
The Festival is supported by the generous sponsorship of several local businesses and funding from the Waitakere Ranges Local Board and The Trusts Community Foundation.
