Toogood will perform with his new band The Adults earlier in the day, and then rock out with Shihad to close the annual all-Kiwi event set for Wellington's Waterfront on February 18.

Other bands named in today's first line-up announcement include Blacklist, Kora, Six60, Kids of 88, Shotgun Alley, The Black Seeds, Black River Drive and 1814.

The line-up also includes hip-hop acts Smashproof, David Dallas and Kidz in Space, and electronic acts Optimus Gryme, Bulletproof and Sunshine Soundsystem. A soundclash is also scheduled between P-Money and Concord Dawn.
