Highlife New Years Eve Experience, Matakana: Event

Highlife New Years Eve, Matakana, DJ Rob WarnerThe Highlife NYE Experience 2009 event is happening again at Matakana Country Park. It's located in a region which is a haven of boutique vineyards and also close to some awesome beaches. It's also just a handy drive from Auckland city (only 45 mins). Last year's Highlife new years event was sold out with over 7000 people rocking out in style across a multi-stage outdoor/indoor event. For anyone in (or planning to be) Auckland this New Years this is a happening party worth checking out.

The Highlife NYE event has 8 zones of varying styles and sizes - starting with the mainstage featuring Sneaky Sound System, DJ Scratch, Vandalism, The Opensouls and more; and other arenas catering to tech-house, deep house, R'n'B, retro, drum n bass, breaks and more. VIP zones and an R24 area also cater to the oldies who need a quick rest.

Local DJs also playing on Highlife NYE include Bevan Keys, Sam Hill, Karn Hall, Philippa, Manuel Bundy, Cuffy, Mark Emerson, Rob Warner (yes, me!) and dozens of others - over 50 in total - covering a wide range of styles.

Nuff said, this is the New Years Eve event to check out if you're anywhere within driving distance of Matakana. You can even catch a helicopter if you're that way inclined.

Edit: 2010/11 Highlife NYE 2010 is being held once again at Stonyridge Vineyard on Waiheke Island.
