The South Island Wine & Food Festival is back in Christchurch this December, with a lineup of Kiwi artists that will be as much of a treat as the food.
Along with 40 of the South Island's top wineries and some of the region's biggest names in food, the entertainment for the day will be headed up by old-school Kiwi music legends The Feelers, along with acclaimed and up-and-coming artists such as Kaylee Bell, PRINS, Anna Coddington and Jack Page.
Having gone from street busking to pioneers of the Kiwi music industry, The Feelers will perform gems from their massive catalogue of music, and all the classic hits you know and love.
Kaylee Bell is an award-winning country-pop artist from Waimate with over 30 million streams to her name, making her currently the most streamed female country artist for Australasia in 2021, while singer-songwriter PRINS has also amassed hundreds of thousands of streams with her unique brand of quirky electro-pop.
Anna Coddington is one of New Zealand's most acclaimed singer-songwriters, known for her enchanting live performances and beautiful, versatile vocals. Jack Page is a burgeoning Christchurch star, having appeared on the scene in early 2020 and touring Aotearoa with sold-out shows over winter. With new music on the horizon and a string of summer shows coming up, he is definitely going to be one to watch.
