Wellington Access Radio are excited to announce that 20-26 March 2023 will be ‘CubaDupa Week’ at the station – a week celebrating the amazing CubaDupa, fill to the brim with festival content!
Station Manager Pip Adam says, ‘We’re thrilled this exciting celebration of talent and community is once again taking place in our neighbourhood. We’ve loved speaking with so many of the performers and businesses involved in CubaDupa.’
During the week programme-makers will be creating space in their shows to speak to artists, showcase acts and play music by festival performers, while Massey journalism students will be out on the streets chatting with the shops and businesses of Cuba St.
Station staff are also putting together a pre-festival special, talking to musicians such as Riki Gooch, Anthonie Tonnon, Tia Ward, Mikeyy, Varda, Waguan, Julie Lamb and more. They will be getting the hot takes on what not to miss in the lineup, as well as playing the musician’s own fabulous tunes. The special will be broadcast on Friday March 24, one day before the festival starts.
Wellington Access Radio are attending CubaDupa as a station to conduct interviews, speak to those attending, and record the electric atmosphere. This will be broadcast as two post-festival specials for all those that missed the weekend or who just want to relive the fun and festivities.
A special ‘CubaDupa Week’ programme schedule will be released closer to the time.
