La De Da
La De Da is Aotearoa’s newest music festival, and was the only place to be this New Year’s Eve. Party-goers from all over New Zealand made the pilgrimage to Martinborough, just one hour’s drive from central Wellington, for a New Year’s experience like no other on 31 December, 2010.
Set amongst Alana Estate’s beautiful vineyards, La De Da boasted a massive lineup of the country’s finest bands, artists, and DJs, and promised to be one party not to be missed!
