Central Otago Mirror - - WHAT’S ON -

A range of mu­sic gen­res will meet when 16 bands line up for the fourth River Range mu­sic fes­ti­val in Cromwell on Jan­uary 14.

Fes­ti­val cre­ater and or­gan­iser Blair Scoullar said acts from through­out the South Is­land would range from punk-rock to elec­tro.

‘‘These guy are lo­cals with orig­i­nal mu­sic,’’ he said.

Bands will play punk-rock, glam­rock, folk, coun­try, elec­tro and drum and bass un­til about 1.30am.

‘‘We cover ev­ery­thing I think,’’ Scoullar said.

Paul Ship­man, Troika, Die!Die! Die! Ragged, Iron Mam­moth and Matt Lan­g­ley will be amongst the ‘‘lo­cal tal­ent’’ to per­form for the Cen­tral Otago crowd.

Last year the fes­ti­val had a crowd of about 1200 peo­ple, and or­gan­is­ers were pleased with the num­bers.

‘‘We are happy re­gard­less,’’ Scoullar said.

This year camp­ing on the site has been added to the fea­tures of the fes­ti­val.

Scoular said it would be con­ve­nient for peo­ple to stay overnight.

He hoped for warm weather ’’with a bit of a breeze’’, but said there was a back-up plan in case of a heavy rain.

The tick­ets can be pur­chased at the gate, with mu­sic start­ing at 12pm and the camp­ing ground open­ing at 10am.
