British Musician Bonobo Returns to Auckland this July

After his last visit in 2015, LA-based British musician, producer and DJ Bonobo announces his return to Auckland but this time he’s bringing his full band.

It’s 17 years since Bonobo first released Animal Magic and he’s getting some of the strongest reviews of his career to date with Pitchfork calling his sixth album Migration “the most sophisticated record of his career” and reviewers of the live show equally impressed. The album features his recent collaboration ‘No Reason’ with kiwi favourite Nick Murphy (FKA Chet Faker).

The Bonobo live show is simultaneously one of the biggest and most subtle electronic music performances you can get - he and his band hit 30 countries and audiences of two million in 18 months supporting his previous release The North Borders and they spent two weeks in February rehearsing the live show before embarking on the tour that is set to check into some of the world’s best venues and festivals across the globe including Coachella and Fuji Rock Festival.

The night will begin with a set by in-demand British producer Romare, who takes a break from his own headline tour supporting his acclaimed latest release Love Songs: Part Two to warm up the dancefloor.

Don’t miss this masterclass in taking genre-melding electronic music out of the studio and onto the stage.
