The 2020 lineup includes hip-hop queen JessB, indie duo She’s So Rad, drum’n’bass boss Tali, dreamy electronic duo Imugi, r’n’b powerhouse Disciple Pati, and some of the best performers from Girls Rock Aotearoa.

Milk & Honey takes place at Auckland’s Silo Park on Sunday, March 8th, and it’s FREE!

DJs Phoebe Falconer and Eva Choy will join the line-up alongside the debut performance from DJ duo The Gingham Twins – Music 101's very own Charlotte Ryan, and Alice Murray.

The team behind Milk & Honey, music industry heavyweights Julia Deans, Lani Purkis (Elemeno P), and Teresa Patterson are excited to return for 2020.

“We are thrilled that M&H is returning and with a new format for 2020. We have curated a line up that celebrates genre, ethnic and rainbow diversity. The collaboration with Silo Park has allowed a fantastic new work environment for our behind-the-scenes and backstage women whanau,” the milk & Honey team says.

The women-led theme extends to the food on offer at the festival which includes Choice Blocks, started by Arana Horncy as a way to give her kids natural treats, and Let's Brezel, run by mother and daughter duo Claudia Reis-Bahiri and Gala Williams who were craving their traditional German baked treat.

Other food trucks include Israeli street food specialist Carmel, organic popcorn artists Organic Knowledge, wood-fire and grill specialists Mediterranean Bites, North American bakers The Pie Piper and coffee warriors Samaori Coffee.
