TechFest 2008 - don't miss it!

Join us at Princes Wharf on Quay Street from 6.30pm on Tuesday 2 September for a fun-packed evening of entertainment. This year we’re very excited to announce not only Opshop as our headline act but dDub to support and give you the ultimate live music experience!

Opshop

 

Opshop

“Like our answer to Coldplay and U2, they played big, rousing pop songs with the beef to fill a stadium and the sentiment to back an Oxfam campaign.”
 - NZ Herald 2007

With a number one, double platinum selling album and the biggest song at New Zealand Radio in 4 years Opshop will undoubtedly give a great performance at Princes Wharf.

dDub
