The bands headlining this year’s Big Day Dowse, presented by Radio Active, are Trinity Roots, Electric Wire Hustle, Newtown Rocksteady and The Troubles!

The annual party in Dowse Square sees people from around the Wellington Region flood to The Dowse Art Museum for a day of music, performances, visual arts, activities for kids and all-round good times.

Between the music acts in Dowse Square, The Wellington Circus Trust and The Wellington Youth Circus will perform acts of amazement. Their circus flash mob will be appearing in the crowds while their experts teach circus workshops for anyone wanting to learn hula hooping, rollabolla or juggling.

Amongst the family activities in the chill out area you’ll find the Wellington Sea Shanty Society and Anna Bailey from String Bean Puppets.
