Soljah are a five piece unit based in Kaipara and Auckland New Zealand, consisting of five heavy weight musicians who are creating waves across Aotearoa with their mesmerising live performances and ground stomping sound.

Autozamm will take the stage around 6.30.

With their massive sound and irresistible hooks, I Am Giant are fast becoming the name on people's lips, even before the release of an album.
