Laughton Kora & Friends

Sunday 22nd October 2017

A night of electronic funk with Laughton and friends that will tantalise the ears and give you the overwhelming urge to party hard.

With his incredible voice and immense talent, Laughton Kora has been at the forefront of New Zealand music for over a decade. Starting at the tender age of six when he appeared on stage as part of his father’s band, he is arguably best known for the legendary group he formed with his brothers, KORA.

Over the years he’s played alongside the likes of Shihad, Coheed and Cambria, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Shapeshifter, Tool and Dizzee Rascal. His touring and festival résumé includes three Big Days Out, WOMADs on both sides of the Tasman, and festivals in the UK, Japan, Singapore and the USA.

Join in the fun as Laughton Kora & Friends - Tom Broome and Guy Harrison - take to the Festival Mainstage.
