Wellington’s waterfront rocks!
The various marquees and stages meandered along half the waterfront – from the far end of Waitangi Park to the far end of Frank Kitt’s – with music coming from all directions. This year the walkways were still open to everyone, rather than being blocked off and only accessible to ticket-holders, and so it became this wonderful mixture of wristbanded party-goers zipping here and there to catch their favourite Kiwi acts, mixed with the general public out for a stroll on a stunning Wellington bluesky sunny day, and taking in the spectacle for free.
Into this mix was thrown various performers doing their thing on outdoor, free-to-anyone stages – and Wellington Batucada – booked for two parades from opposite ends of the waterfront, each culminating in an on-stage performance on the buskers’ stage.
It was a beautiful day, a brilliant atmosphere, everyone was having fun and enjoying the local bands, and we had a ball. Here are some pictures:
