Sun Salute -  Head lined 2016 Saturday Night who will it be in 2017?


Reggae, Hip Hop & Funky Roots in one

Sun Salute draw inspiration for their material from nature, travel, and the exploration of consciousness. They use themes and concepts from life’s simplicity to create songs rich in morality and positivity. Front man Hayden Weke from the north east of New Zealand brings his connection to Maori culture to the stage with traditional chants and indigenous message. Sun Salutes energy on stage is infectious. Sun Salute is on a mission to spread positivity and healing through music, one crowd at a time!
