Sawmill Brewery Presents: Madcap Madness Festival


Situated on one of Auckland’s most colourful strips, the unique Karangahape Road, the musical showcase will include performances from some of our country’s most talented musicians, covering a multitude of genres across the musical spectrum. The focus is on supporting homegrown music. Therefore, the staggering line-up of over 22 artists will be entirely comprised of New Zealand-based musical talent. Among those performing this year are familiar names like Raiza Biza, Montell 2099, Villette, SoccerPractise, Shiraz & LSJ.

Madcap Madness is about discovering new music and supporting artists you’re already following. As an indoor festival, the ease of movement within St Kevin’s Arcade will make it convenient to catch a range of different acts across our three stages.

The intimacy of this indoor music festival promises to bring you a complete community experience drawing together the local music, art and culture that Madcap places a strong emphasis on. Good vibes only.
