Justice or Grace Jones? Future or The Avalanches? Beck or Phoenix?

Auckland City Limits has released the timetable for its upcoming Auckland festival, and with 33 acts to see across five stages and 12 hours, there might be some tough decisions for fans to make.

Released today, the timetable for the March 3 festival at Western Springs shows Beck will close out the show with a main stage set starting at 9.45pm.

But fans will have to chose between seeing the Loser hitmaker playing sun-drenched songs from his recent album Colours, or French synth-rock act Phoenix, who kick off at 10pm and run till 11pm.


Grace Jones performs on the Tamaki stage at 7.45pm, but Justice fans will need to leave early and head towards the main stage at 8.15pm.

And Aussie sample titans The Avalanches are up against Future and Tash Sultana.

Hip-hop fans are in luck, with clear air between SWIDT's 1.30pm show, Young Thug's 5.15pm set, and Future's 7.15pm set.

Promoter Campbell Smith encourages fans to explore the timetable further than the headliners.

His picks include Norway's Sigrid, Aussie act Tash Sultana and young acts like Drax Project and Alien Weaponry.

He also points to Justice's set, which includes 24 tonnes of equipment being shipped in for it, and Grace Jones.

"I still can't quite believe we have her in Auckland at last. We know she is going to be the festival highlight for many fans, especially as she will play a full concert length 75 minute set."

Auckland City Limits is returning to Western Springs after debuting in 2016.
