Tom Scott’s Avantdale Bowling Club brings a fusion of deeply rich jazz riffs with rap vocals and a killer hip-hop production to the Festival, in full force and with new tracks. Receiving a series of accolades including the Taite Music Prize and a Hip-Hop Artist of the Year award, Scott’s latest project after the cult successes of Home Brew, Average Rap Band, and @Peace finds him riding a high, at the top of his game.

Be among the first to hear fresh material live and continue the journey through Scott’s searingly raw, autobiographical lyricism. Join him and an enviable lineup of top genre-mashing musicians (Julien Dyne, Ben Turua, Tonga Vaea, JY Lee, and Guy Harrison) for a unique night of daring honesty, energy, and performance.
