We are slip-slop-slapping with excitement to announce that the supreme summer series The Beach Ball is back, and bigger than ever! That’s right, sun’s out fun’s out, with shows around the motu, including a special one-off Beach Ball headlined by The Black Seeds with support from Racing in Kerikeri!

Friday December 29th, our favourite Northland destination Kerikeri plays host to a Beach Ball for the first time, with the summer ready sounds of The Black Seeds set to soundtrack the end of your year in their inimitable reggae-inspired style. Pōneke’s finest will play the big tunes plucked from over two decades of their iconic releases.

Joining the bill with their truly unique melding of airtight rock’n’roll and space-age disco grooves is Racing. Rock radio phenom, the band are well oiled from a year of massive shows, and are all set to help you see 2023 in epic style at The Old Packhouse.

Hailing from the Far North, Norizin have a special blend of rock and reggae drops, infused with Te Reo. A perfect blend to add to this cracking line-up.

The Old Packhouse in Kerikeri is an iconic venue with multiple indoor and outdoor areas to explore at this special festival event. In addition to the Main Stage area, this event will feature multiple bars including a Cocktail Bar, DJs in The Chiller and The Cafe, and the AMAZING food that The Old Packhouse is famous for.
