This is a whole day event; join us for an afternoon in the sun to celebrate Salmonella Dub's 25th anniversary with some of Aotearoa's finest musicians.

‘Salmonella Dub, legends of the NZ music scene are celebrating their 25th anniversary with three very special shows this summer, featuring the return of Tiki Taane.’

These shows mark 25 years for the multiple platinum selling and award winning Salmonella Dub, and will be especially memorable with the featured return of Tiki Taane who worked with the band from 1996 until 2006.

Pioneers of Aotearoa’s Dub n’ Bass scene, Salmonella Dub have always pushed musical boundaries, taking a reggae foundation and fusing it with multiple genres to create a sound entirely their own.

Salmonella Dub’s impressive and very important place in New Zealand music history is undeniable - seven studio albums, three remix albums, a live album with the NZSO, four EP’s, and over 161 songs collectively achieving 10 x platinum across a catalogue that has sold over 600k worldwide, 270 + festival appearances, five Tui awards, and twelve Bnets awards all proving testament to this band's iconic status.

Founding member Andrew Penman says  “We are preparing an iconic, audio-visual, bass heavy, back catalogue mash up with a super-abundantly full treasure chest of guests”.

Tiki Taane says of his welcome return “To be able to help my old band mates celebrate 25 years of Salmonella Dub is a glorious prospect and probably a once in a lifetime occurrence – no one will want to miss this”.

From their very first live appearance in 1993, to the forthcoming 25th anniversary tour, passion, creativity, energy, driving bass beats and pure joy are the signature hallmarks of one of New Zealand’s most successful bands.

Don’t miss out on what promises to be a truly phenomenal live eight-piece band executed dance floor experience.
