Music on – It’s Devonstock

What better way to drill into summer with melodious music and scenic Devonport views with your friends, families or relatives? Continuing from previous successful Devonstock concerts, this year’s will be held at the spacious grounds of Windsor Reserve on Saturday 15th December from 3pm till 7pm. If it happens to rain, the scheduled rain date is on the following day, Sunday 16th December. This year, the Devonstock crew are honoured to have FiveMileTown, Josh Leys & Andy Keys, Petra Bullock, Liam Jaques, Between the Lines and Exit 420 featuring in Devonstock.

All of these performers are brimming with talent and could be the potential leaders of tomorrow’s music scene. Most of them are from the local Devonport-Takapuna area, so it’s very likely the amazing voice from the stage is coming from your friend, classmate or your neighbour. Plunge in for the fun!

The very first Devonstock was in 2007 and it’s a great place for local talent to be discovered, much like the band The Checks who sprung upwards from Devonstock. So why not come along and hear some superb singing you could be paying for to hear years later from now?

Devonstock 2012 is bound to be a sweet treat for your family and friends.  Best of all it’s free for all ages thanks to generous funding from Devonport-Takapuna Local Board and with the venue being accessible to all, you’ve got almost no excuse not to rock up! Devonstock is also a non-alcoholic event.
