Tour news: Auckland City Limits confirms final line-up

Girl Talk is set to perform at the Auckland City Limits music festival.
Girl Talk is set to perform at the Auckland City Limits music festival.

He's known for going ballistic at his live shows, jumping around, over and on to his mixing desk. He'll often invite as many crowd members as will fit on stage to dance to his mashed-up medleys. And his ADD-style of DJing sees him playing hundreds of songs an hour.

You'll be able to see Gregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, in action again this summer when he graces the stage at Auckland City Limits. It'll be his third festival performance in New Zealand after two Big Day Out appearances in 2010 and 2012.


Due to be held on March 19 at Western Springs Stadium, ACL's third and final line-up announcement is made today, with Girl Talk and Auckland-based pop-punk outfit Openside joining the bill.

They'll play on a line-up that includes Kendrick Lamar, The National, Cold War Kids, Fat Freddy's Drop, Modest Mouse, Shapeshifter and Action Bronson.

Also confirmed today is the line-up for the Tavern of Power, Golden Dawn's pop-up bar that will see the Ponsonby favourite venture offsite for the first time in its five-year history.

Festival organiser Campbell Smith says the bar will include a series of live acts that will "pay homage to the late, lamented Lilyworld" at the Big Day Out.

It has been given the best space on the Western Springs site, with bar owner Matthew Crawley saying the line-up is full of "surprises and wonder".

It includes familiar faces Delaney Davidson and Hopetoun Brown, with the Carnivorous Plant Society, Pater Baecker, Shab Orkestra, Storehouse Blues, David Correos, Joseph Harper, Paul Amos and others also scheduled to make an appearance.
