The first acts have been announced for the upcoming New Year's Eve festival Northern Bass, with Foreign Beggars, Fat Freddy's Drop and Freddie Gibbs all set to play.

They'll be joined by acts including Noisia, Camo & Krooked, Friction, Quix, Shy FX and MC Stamina, Krafty Kuts, Coki, and Tokimonsta.

Acclaimed Kiwi hip-hop artists JessB, Melodownz and Ladi6 will also perform at the three-day event.

Northern Bass will once again be held at Mangawhai, north of Auckland and take place from December 29, 2019 to January 1, 2020.

Other artists announced include Pinch, IAMDDB, D Double E, Mungos HiFi with Eva Lazarua, Benny L and Break, Lenzman, DV Breaks and Ulterior Motive.

"We've come a long way since the first Northern Bass in 2011, with a really loyal base of supporters who come back every year with their mates," says Northern Bass director Gareth Popham.

"Even before today's first line-up announcement, Northern Bass 19/20 is our fastest selling festival yet."

The festival features on-site camping and food outlets such as Burgerfuel, Fatimas and Hell Pizza.

Tickets to the festival are on sale now.
