Eggfest returns after two-year hiatus

After a two-year hiatus, Eggfest will ride again at Eggsentric Cafe in Cooks Beach.
Featuring Ty Segall & Freedom Band, Earth Tongue, Dictaphone Blues, Judah Kelley, and with DJ’s Gussie and Mister Crawley, this intimate 300-capacity show is set to sell out, as it has done each year.
California guitar hero Ty Segall is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and record producer.
The prolific psych rocker is bringing his supersonic sound machine to Aotearoa this summer, accompanied by the all-star Freedom Band: Mikal Cronin (bass), Charles Moothart (drums), Emmett Kelly (guitar), and Ben Boye (keys).
Live, fans can expect tunes from across Segall’s considerable catalogue. 
Earth Tongue’s guitarist Gussie Larkin (Mermaidens) has become a master of the fuzz-smothered riff, and along with Ezra Simons’ off-kilter drumming, they’ve been sending punters into transcendental states since they began gigging in their home town of Wellington in 2016.
Following the release of their debut album Floating Being in 2019 via Bristol-based label Stolen Body Records, Earth Tongue toured Australia, the UK and Europe, picking up praise along the way.
Nigh on 15 years old, Dictaphone Blues is a band that has seen a carousel of different faces play the songs of Edward Castelow.
With three critically acclaimed albums, an EP, countless shows across New Zealand and Australia and tour supports for Broken Social Scene, Johnny Marr and The Veils, the band has proved to be stalwarts of the indie scene. With a new EP on the way, Dictaphone Blues is fixing to unveil a new line up including Morgan Leary (Cindy), Brad Fafejta (Cream Jean) and Jamie Hannah (Spawts). 
Meanwhile, Ōtepoti singer and songwriter, Judah Kelley, has displayed her range of talent and diversity with just three singles. From the beginning, Judah has made a positive mark in the Aotearoa music industry; gracing the Top 20 NZ Hot Single charts, with her debut single Ready at number 15 and her latest single Apathy at number 5. She has performed solo for the last five years but debuted her full band live performance this year at Whammy Bar, with Wiri Donna, and Hollywood Avondale with Harper Finn.
