Headlining band, The Human League state, “Where does the time go? By the time we see you all next it will have been seven years since we last played in New Zealand, but we couldn’t be happier to be coming back and headlining the ‘Sounds Series’ festivals in February and March 2024. We really cannot wait to come to your beautiful country again and we really hope you will come and join us in either Auckland, Christchurch or Hutt. See you in 2024!”

Get ready to dance away to smash hits like The Human League with Don’t You Want Me Baby, Human, and (Keep Feeling) Fascination; Go Westgems like We Close Our Eyes, The King of Wishful Thinking, and Don’t Look Down.
