Love Bug returns to the beautiful courtyard of the Old Stone Butter Factory in Whangarei bringing you the best in underground house music.

This time we are looking forward to welcoming back NZ house music pioneer and cornerstone, Andy Vann. With 30 years of DJing behind him, Andy is one of the most influential figures in the Auckland scene, playing in many of the city's classic clubs (Club 21, Chassers, The Brat, Cleos, Zanzibar, Berlin, Redzone, De Bretts, The Box, Calibre, Centro to name a few).

Andy has done more than most to promote dance culture to New Zealand and abroad. He's the mastermind behind NZ House labels HuHu Music & Grass Green Recordings, taking the cream of New Zealand deep house and disco to the world. Andy is also the founder of New Zealand's longest-serving House music brand Fine Tuned (since 1999) which is and has been responsible for some of Auckland’s finest underground house music events. During his DJ career, Andy has spun alongside such luminaries as Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Fred Everything, Inland Knights, Sonny Fodera, DJ Sneak, Frankie Knuckles, Josh Wink, Kevin Saunderson, Littleman Big, Gene Farris, Joshua, Da Sunlounge and much more.

Andy also founded the legendary Hip Hop, R&B, House Label Voodoo Vinyl in the late 80's featuring classic chart topping acts such as Sisters Underground, Chaingang, Semi MC`s, Slam & Jam and Pacifican Descendants and was part of the team that released the now legendary Proud album. Andy is also a member of 3-piece Deep House and Disco act Monkey Boots.

Andy will be supported by Love Bug resident, Little Man Big, Whangarei's own UK deep house import. Both as a solo artist and as part of Lo-Motion and The Littlemen, Gavin Belton (aka Little Man Big) has released umpteen EP's and remixes over a 15 year releasing history, on top level labels such as Aroma, Drop Music, Tilted, Myna, Amenti, Tango and Guesthouse, as well as The Littlemen's own Mobile Trax imprint. He has DJ'd all over the world and, as part of the legendary Smokescreen Soundsystem, has helped organise and set up some of the best underground free parties and club nights in the UK.
