Thursday 21 August 2008

The full and final line-up for Southern Amp 2008 is now confirmed.

The South Island’s biggest music festival, taking place on Sunday 9 November at Westpac Arena Festival Park in Christchurch from midday, now comprises FOUR live music stages with loads more international acts than before as well as a solid line-up of Australian, NZ and local Christchurch artists.

Earlybird tickets SOLD OUT in just two weeks and demand is stronger than ever before. Promoters advise that all remaining tickets are expected to sell out well in advance of the concert date so fans should purchase tickets as soon as they can to avoid missing out.
