The TomTom ‘Welcome to Winter’ Sound Stage will create a vibrant and fun atmosphere in Queenstown from 2-3 July 2021, a big little party for our visitors and local community.

Location: Earnslaw Park


Featuring Headline acts: Jackie Bristow & Dual


From the embers of kiwi four-piece Narwhal, a new and untamed beast was formed. Over the coming years, a perfect synergy would form between two kiwi songwriters, transcending into a propulsive force of nature. Makers of lush, low-key dancefloor anthems, DUAL bring together the raw, glacial power of lead vocalist Maurice Miller with guitarist Jamie Pyne ’s dynamic guitar lines and electronic production for a heady mix of Indietronica.

Jackie Bristow

The festival is thrilled to have Americana, Country Folk singer-songwriter Jackie Bristow as one of the headline acts on the Welcome to Winter soundstage. Jackie has played alongside big names including Boz Skaggs, Foreigner, Bonnie Raitt, Tommy Emmanuel, the Steve Miller Band and Chris Isaak. American Songwriter described Bristow as “Composing some of the most beautiful, compelling Americana today”.
