Labour weekend is on the horizon and as befitting the start of summer Whaingaroa!

The Yotty brings you three killer nights and one afternoon of entertainment, including a Soundsplash kick-off party and the first Sunday Sessions of the summer.

Friday has local DJ and producer Dubsonic laying down a collection of bass heavy, dance floor stompers, with a tasty amount of his own tunes and remixes thrown in.

Dubsonic has recently returned to Raglan after completing residencies in Asia and has a huge selection of new tunes.

Saturday is going to be massive! We’re celebrating the return of Soundsplash with a very special kick-off announcement party featuring local legends Cornerstone Roots who are playing the Yotty for the first time in ages. With huge support from Laughton and Brad Kora’s new project, L.A.B.

Music before, during and after the bands will be provided by one of the nations top DJs, Downtown Brown. Along with this stellar lineup comes the official Soundsplash Roots & Culture Stage announcement for Soundsplash 2016! This lineup includes some of the finest in the roots n’culture/dancehall/dub/soul mix! This is going to be an epic night with Soundsplash festival ticket giveaways and more.

Finally, not to be missed–Raglan Sunday Sessions is throwing a labour weekend party! Join us in the yard for good times, great sounds, food and culture! Live DJs and MC’s, finger licking jerk BBQ chicken and drink specials. This Sunday 25th starting at 4.20pm with free entry ($5 after 8pm).
