Hoodoo Gurus and more at Hutt Sounds 2023

On Sunday 5 March a shiny new festival is coming to Wellington – Hutt Sounds. Headlining will be Australian rockers Hoodoo Gurus in one of their first Aotearoa performances in twenty years.

Hoodoo Gurus frontman Dave Faulkner expressed the band’s excitement to be back across the ditch: “We’re thrilled to be coming back to New Zealand. Finally! We were starting to think it was never gonna happen – but we’re off and running now, with a spring in our step and a fire in our bellies. We’re coming to shake it down at Hutt Sounds, on The Shaky Isles!”

Kiwi electronic rockers Mi-Sex will also be among the line-up, performing their new-wave post-punk hits.

Lead by vocalist Boh Runga 80s chart-toppers Stellar* will be bringing their mix of rock and electronica to the stage, and fresh from a stint in California Greg Johnson will being performing songs from his 30 year musical career.
