A one night, multi-venue music and arts festival like no other.
Ōhinehou / Lyttelton
Under the backdrop of Lytteton’s industry and landscape, Port Noise is an annual music and arts festival like no other. Through collaboration with our community, Port Noise transforms the car park and courtyard that connects three neighbouring iconic venues in Ōhinehou
American drag-rap performance artist gone lush Mediterranean cowboy, Mykki Blanco will be joining the bill. Alongside will be the mesmerisingly brittle group built from members of The Dirty Three and Mckisko, Mess Esque, and Melbourne-based disco-shredding indie pop sensations, Cool Sounds.
As well as these overseas travellers, we have Flying Nun jangle alumni The Bats, psychedelic buzz-boppers Soaked Oats, celestial beat messengers Clear Path Ensemble, fevered avant-garage trio Coolies, opera-dungeon-techno-sludge oufit Grecco Romank, downbeat soul-style MC Mā, aliencore trip-hop collaborators PollyHill x Samara Alofa, ground-dwelling fuzz-rockers Wurld Series, Oamaru grog-rockers Cuticles, Ōhinehou local hip-hop legend Kommi, and the debut of the modular polyrhythmic era-bending Worldwide Panopticon.
Not to mention our late night kick-ons featuring the Big Fresh Collective Takeover, Borrowed CS, and Craigslist DJs.
With our incredible partners, Three Boys Brewery and The Boneline - we will be offering festival-goers fantastic beverages, along with delicious local cuisine.
While Port Noise primarily takes place in this central hub, patrons are also invited to a range of unannounced, intimate performances throughout Ōhinehou Lyttelton. Throughout local industrial and heritage spaces, these dazzling, one of a kind performances feature a huge roster of unannounced guests, collaborating and performing in a context that is completely unique to our festival.
