The Opiuo Band Saturday 18 Apr 2015 9:00pm - 3:00amFor New Zealand native Opiuo, making music has been an undeniable passion that encapsulates his every moment. His incredibly original, against the grain style is often referred to simply as "funkadelic bass music", a term he supports wholeheartedly.

His music has since reached the #1 position on the iTunes, Hype Machine, Beatport & Addictech charts. Racking up 5 million plays on his Soundcloud page, Opiuo swept the 2013 UK Glitch-Hop Awards with 5 wins. His latest full- length album Meraki was a finalist for the Best Electronica Album at the New Zealand Music Awards 2014. Opiuo's unique take on electronic music has captured the attention of music lovers around the entire globe, with sets at Coachella (USA), Glastonbury (UK), Shambhala (Canada), Lightning In A Bottle (USA), Boomtown Fair (UK) as well as headlining tours across Australia, New Zealand, N. America, Europe, Asia, Israel and India. Hes shared the stage with some of musics elite including Bassnectar, Moby, Pete Tong, Bonobo, & The Glitch Mob to name a few. Whether hes equipped with his solo setup of various drum machines and synths, or performing 100% live as The Opiuo Band, his explosive live shows never disappoint. As a remixer Opiuo's credits span far & wide, from Gwen Stefani to Kimbra, Pretty Lights to Infected Mushroom, KOAN Sound to Shapeshifter and many more.
