Diplo, Flume to headline Listen In Auckland 2019 festival

Electronic dance music heavyweights Diplo and Flume are heading to New Zealand in a matter of months to headline the Listen In Auckland festival.

The gig, a "concentrated version" of Australia's Listen Out festival, will feature a selection of acts from the larger show across the ditch.

Making up the rest of the initial line-up for Kiwi audiences are ScHoolboy Q, 6Lack and Slowthai, with more artists set to be announced.

Flume surprised fans with a new mix tape entitled Hi This Is Flume earlier this year, while Diplo recently dropped a four-track EP called Higher Ground, featuring a collaboration with Tove Lo.

Last year's Listen In saw hip-hop stars A$AP Rocky and Lil Skies play Auckland's Spark Arena alongside EDM titans Skepta and Skrillex. This year, the festival moves to Mount Smart Stadium on October 4, 2019.

Tickets go on sale Thursday May 23.
