About this Event

In a fast paced, busy, commercial world where finding spaces to transcend “daily life” in a tasteful way through experiential events - or having a safe space to celebrate life in a positive way without stigma and guilt are rare. There are limited consistent events where DJ and visual artists can collaborate to create next-level shows together combining art and music.

Neptuno is that space.

In the third edition we find ourselves at Black Barn Bistro. Set in the outdoor limestone courtyard with a pergola full of grape vines overhead, the setting emanates strong Balearic summer energy, a nod to one of the meccas of the underground scene.

Jesper Tjårnfors [Rationalism Records/BLDOM/Radio cult] , Neptuno's lead DJ, producer and musical director invites you on a journey to experience Neptuno's warm, underground, minimal house music sound. He has curated our line up with his friends & DJ's Kédu Carlö, & Hawke's Bay local, DOWork, who will represent our unique sound in their own way. This line up represents a group of artists leading the way in the contemporary House Music scene in Aotearoa.

Kédu Carlö are an unstoppable duo. After five years of exploring many areas of the music scene together and separately, locally and internationally - the duo have united their eclectic findings, ushering in a new era of their musical journeys as experimental electronic producers. 2020 saw the release of 3 vibrant house tracks - ‘Ije Ije', ‘Donald’, and the acclaimed ‘2005 GTO’.


The girls’ unique sound is influenced by their musical backgrounds - Jess as a singer and keyboardist and Carly as a drummer. A strong reference to Chicago house, acid, techno, and breaks comes through in their music and their bold live sets, whilst distinctly marking their point of difference with the use of lush live percussion, melodic experimentation and sarcastic lyricism. They’ve self-described their style as ‘Afro Acid’.


From the studio to the stage, the girls are full of surprises in their unapologetic style, punching into the scene as tastemakers and one-to-watch creatives

Edition #2 also features several visual artists.

Dali Susanto will bring his unique painting style with body painting and live art. Dali was born in Jakarta, Indonesia, brought up surrounded by artists. His family owned batik galleries and taught tourists and students the skills in batik work. He was named by his parents after Salvador Dali in hope that he would follow along the same footsteps and become an artist. Dali has developed a distinctive style using a series of motifs and patterns which he incorporates into his work which are often based on themes of love and relationships.

Helmed by creative director Lakshman Anandanayagam, Creature Post are a team of visual thinkers, image makers, vfx and experience designers who help bring creative projects and unusual ideas to life. Using multiple toolsets and media platforms to craft groundbreaking ideas, they work at the intersection of entertainment, vfx, art and commerce.

Neptuno is a safe space and welcome all walks of life, sexual orientation, country of origin, gender and religion. We will not tolerate any aggressive, homophobic, trans-phobic, sexist, racist, rowdy or intoxicated behaviour. We encourage radical expression so dress how ever you feel. We are an 18 + event.
