What better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon than chilling out in Windsor Reserve on a rug, eating ice cream and enjoying the sounds?
And all for free. Yay. Well perhaps not the ice cream. But the ambience and music was, at this year’s Devonstock Music Festival. Set by the beautiful Devonport waterfront, the festival was organised by local teenagers to showcase the music of young artists like: SKILAA, Munkhouse, Daffodils, Gretel (and The Handsomes), Masonic Silk and Ben Glandfield.
So many talented young musicians got the crowd smiling and bouncing their feet to the beat. Nearly every act attracted a swarm of fans to dance in front of the stage.
There were a range of food and craft stalls at this smoke-free and alcohol-free event in Windsor Reserve, so people were able to hover round and enjoy the afternoon, fully sated.
A fantastic effort by the organisers, the Devonport Youth Forum and Devonport Peninsula Trust. Special thanks to Devonport-Takapuna Local Board for their support.
