Thanks to everyone who came to Phoenix Fest 08! The sun was shining, people streamed in from all entry points to Basque Park, the markets interested, the Funky Monkeys kept the kids happy, and the music entertained. Kicking off with SJD, the tunes were cruisy, then ramped up a bit with The Lewis McCallum Orchestra, and hit an all time high (and everyone on their feet) for Kora, our headline act.
With an estimated 15,000 people enjoying the Phoenix Fest over the course of the afternoon, it's become a must-have on Auckland's event calendar. So there's no doubt we'll be bringing it to you again next summer. Keep checking www.phoenixfest.co.nz for an announcement later this year of the dates and acts for Phoenix Fest 09. See you there!
