Headline act . . . Singer/songwriter Mitch James will be the headline act for Bandquet at Caroline Bay.

The Bandquet festival is coming to Caroline Bay on March 13.

The one-day festival will feature six prominent Kiwi artists, including Jason Kerrison from Opshop and Sweet Mix Kids who have performed at Coachella alongside big names such as Ed Sheeran.

The festival will be Mitch James’s first performance in the South Island this year.

Managing director Simon Carter said it would be a fantastic line-up, to celebrate New Zealand music.

“We’re offering a smorgasbord of great food and great artists. “We’re very excited to have Mitch James performing this year in Timaru.”

Other artists include Kaylee Bell, City Limits, and the InCrowd.

The event will also appeal to food lovers, with a mix of food trucks, local food vendors and brewers.

The event was aimed at a broad range of people by offering a variety of music and food, and appealing to groups of friends and whanau.

“The venue has enough space for a group of friends to spend the day there to relax, but also for families we have children entertained.”affiliate link traceNike Air Max 90 W nike elite running clothes
