Bay Dreams is back for 2017 and the second line up announcement this morning is looking damn good.

Kiwi drum-n-bass faves Shapeshifter will be headlining the R18 festival and will be accompanied by British DJ and producer SKREAM, as well as Canadian electronic artist Ryan Hemsworth.

Aussie beat-maker Kilter will return to our shores for the Bay Dreams party with Dunedin's Summer Thieves in the mix too.

Herman Saiz, an electronic house producer with Latin roots will also join kiwi hip-hop sensation Rory Noble in the festival lineup.

The already epic first lineup was announced last month and includes Sticky Fingers, Grandmaster Flash, Bizzy Bone, Katchafire, Kora, Concord Dawn and Home Brew.

All of whom will be sure to party it up across the four different stages.


There will be another headliner and more acts to be announced at a later date.

The one-day event is on January 2 at Mount Maunganui's ASB Bay Park Stadium.

Tickets are already half sold out and are still available from
