Synthony In The Domain releases a performance schedule & DJ stage line-up

Thursday 16 March 2023

With less than three weeks to go, New Zealand’s pre-eminent electronic dance music party, SYNTHONY IN THE DOMAIN, unveils the full timetable for this one-of-a-kind music festival.

In keeping with this ethos of being an event like no other, Synthony In The Domain performances are favourably weighted at both ends, with a running order offering world-class artist performances right from gates opening at 2:00pm, to the very end of the evening when Shapeshifter bring the event to a close.
With upwards of 25,000 fans expected to attend and a whole day of live music on offer, the timetable is now available so that fans can plan to get to Pukekawa and ensure they do not miss out on the full sets or special guest vocalist appearances of their favourite artists.


Capping off the final announcement, a stellar cast of established and fast-rising DJ’s will be book-ending the full live set performances, keeping the party vibe alive throughout the afternoon and leading up to the main event, Synthony #4. Synthony Music Director and curator, the legendary DICK JOHNSON will be opening, with Clint Roberts (ZM) on MC and DJ duties for the main stage through the afternoon and into the evening.

The Hot Spring Spas DJ Stage will feature rapturous sets from house music duo Teto & Sammie aka SYRUP; beloved audio adventurer MURRY SWEETPANTS; house & disco duo HARRISON JUPE; upbeat acid-synth styler MISS B, and house & techno selector BEN PARKES - collectively encompassing all the dopamine-releasing feel-good EDM styles from disco, techno, and house to fire up the dance-floor!

Preparations are well and truly underway for the transformation of the spacious and verdant grounds of Pukekawa / Auckland Domain for this inaugural SYNTHONY In THE DOMAIN. The dual-stage set up, cutting edge production, and stunning laser show promises to be the perfect complement to the high calibre of artists coming together to grace the SYNTHONY stage.

David Higgins, MD and Founder of DUCO Touring states: “We are delighted almost 25,000 people will join us for a phenomenal show and our biggest production yet!”

Witness the SYNTHONY stage come to life with full live sets from D&B heavy-weights SHAPESHIFTER, pop songstress KIMBRA, beloved singer-song-writing legend SIR DAVE DOBBYN & BAND, Australian vibe setters SNEAKY SOUND SYSTEM and local chart-topping dance-duo SACHI.

This year’s world premiere of SYNTHONY No.4 is once again curated by DJ DICK JOHNSON with musical arrangements by master composer RYAN YOUENS, featuring the biggest Synthony ensemble to date with performances from guest vocalists and instrumentalists SIR DAVE DOBBYN; MISS CONNIE (Sneaky Sound System); TIKI TAANE; ILAN KIDRON (The Potbelleez); SAVAGE; ELLA MONNERY; JEREMY REDMORE; BELLA KALOLO, NATE DOUSAND, JUJULIPPS, AROHA (host) and LEWIS MCCALLUM on sax.

With a solid reputation for continually delivering a visually magnificent and sonically opulent experience, tickets are in high demand with over 25,000 revellers expected making this the biggest SYNTHONY show yet, and one of the biggest music festival events to take place in New Zealand this summer.

After recently stretching its legs as a headliner on the SOLD OUT Electric Avenue Festival in Christchurch, SYNTHONY is primed to deliver its most dynamic and impactful headline performance to date.
