Attracting thousands of people from all walks of life to take over the streets, injecting an electrified atmosphere into an already spirited quarter for two days of artistic discovery, immersion and participation, Cuba Street is reinvented.
Rediscover a familiar space or explore the unknown…either way, your experience will be like no other as CubaDupa breaks boundaries with over 250 curated performances over 17 hours. Get lost in a sea of people at one of our 7 stages, find your rhythm with a street parade, explore the weird and wonderful winding your way through alleys and side streets, all while tasting your way from Abel Smith to Wakefield Street as part of our annual Moore Wilson’s street food festival.
A heads up, this is just a taster of exciting things on the way for CubaDupa 2019. Keep your eyes peeled, your ears tuned and your taste buds on high alert as we release more tasty performances and shows over the coming months.
We are thrilled to announce the first artist release for CubaDupa 2019. Building on the celebration of universal street culture, CubaDupa will present wonderful international highlights and strong and extraordinary line-up of New Zealand artist and creative projects. Drew James - Festival Director
