This week it has enlisted the design magic of mulitple academy award winner Richard Taylor and his design team at Weta Studios. 

Promoter Phil Sprey of Capital C: Concerts made the surprise announcement to an international group of entertainment investors over the weekend adding, “Being resident in Wellington, New Zealand is like living in the most creative spot on the planet”. “When we approached Richard and the team at WETA, they were very enthusiastic to add their design skills to the concepts we had in mind. The result on March 22 & 23 next year will be awesome--the Westpac Stadium will be transformed into a spectacular setting for the largest music festival of its kind ever in this country, possibly Australaisia”.

WETA will be adding special set effects to the double headed rock weekend and the public will soon be getting more ‘surprises’ as the other international bands are announced. Already the KISS announcement has seen a mountain of enquiries from the USA and UK arrive in Capital C’s NZ and US offices.
