Splore is keeping things typically eclectic with their February 2022 festival, but have had to plan the line-up around closed borders.
The Breaks N'Brass live show, featuring Ria Hall, Tali and Rubi Du, will also make its New Zealand debut at Splore.
Breaks N'Brass will bring a live band featuring a 10-strong brass section as it rips through 90s hip hop and R&B classics.

Kora will return to Splore and Kiwi icon Don McGlashan will make his long overdue debut.
But if you're hoping to get tickets, you might be out of luck, with the festival selling out in a record four days back in June 2021.
Splore's theme for 2022 is "Wakey Wakey E Oho", with the theme inspires the imagination, to awaken and come to the party with eyes wide open.
Organisers were appealing to the audience to recognise what festival attire, like stick-on sparkly gems, plastic glitter and cheap costumes contribute to Aotearoa's landfill and waterways pollution.
The challenge has been laid for the audience to sparkle with positivity and good vibes instead of glitter, and to use recycled materials for costumes.
Splore Producer Fryderyk Kublikowski said they had a diverse mindful tribe that attend the event.
"But we are still leaving a tidy bunch of used and discarded costumes in our wake and the site gets littered in tiny particles of plastic glitter.
"Our goal is to become a zero waste festival, so this year we are asking our people to be with us in that goal, because together we are the solution."
In 2021 they measured and offset their operation carbon emissions, attaining CarbonZero Event Operation certification.
But this time, they are doing that plus measuring and offsetting the emissions from the audiences' travel to Tāpapakanga, making Splore a carbon-neutral experience for all involved.
A standby list for tickets to the festival can be found on Splore's website, and festival director John Minty told Stuff previously they were considering options about how to expand their capacity under their current resource consent, which allows for 10,000 punters, and runs through until 2024.
Splore will be held February 25-27, 2022, at Tāpapakanga Regional Park.
