A politically astute and emotionally potent singer, Ria Hall touches on themes of love and war, revolution and change, on her debut album Rules of Engagement – its narrative inspired in part by 1864’s Battle of Gate Pā (Pukehinahina) and delivered in both te reo Māori and English over Pacific-inspired beats. 

She’ll bring her raw and rootsy songs to life with the help of vocalist Mara TK and powerhouse Wellington trio The Nudge.

New Zealand Festival Club 

See a show, stay for the party. This electric pop-up on Wellington’s waterfront is the place to be and be seen for three fun-filled Festival weeks. And when the curtain falls each night, Wellington’s newest hot spot throws open its doors with free entry for everyone. Because the show ain’t over until the Festival Club closes.
