Todd Luffa (Whanganui-a-Tara)
Todd Luffa is the experimental Ambient-pop project of Tony Amerman, originally from Minneapolis MN, now based in Pōneke. Todd Luffa’s multiple releases combine sample based sounds, arpeggios, HNW and heavy bass. Todd Luffa last played in Tāmaki Makaurau at Outlier Festival in 2019 and we’re so blessed to have them back!

Kraus (aka Pat Kraus) (he/him) is a producer of psychedelic music from Tāmaki Makaurau. Since the turn of the millennium he has released 20 solo albums on labels such as Ultra Eczema and Soft Abuse, and performed in a dozen bands. His recent work melds hypnotic rhythms and day-glo sci-fi sound-design into new forms of ambient and experimental electronics.

Pleasure Farming
Pleasure Farming (aka Kristian Larsen) is a Tamaki Makaurau based artist working in the instertices between improvisation, contemporary dance, and digital audio in both live and recorded performance. His artistic interests lie in exploring hauntologies and obsolescence in the body and technology. Sonically the work might be called conceptronica. Digitally processed recordings of machines, electrical and radio signals, and the ghosts of pop songs move in waves becoming ulerior backgrounds and moody foregrounds.
