Westpac Stadium will host India twice in the space of one week with an ODI on Sunday 3 February followed by a Waitangi Day T20 double header featuring both the WHITE FERNS and BLACKCAPS on Wednesday 6 February.
Drax Project to perform at T20 Double-Header on Waitangi Day
Emerging Kiwi music-superstars Drax Project will make a special appearance during the T20 double-header at Westpac Stadium on Waitangi Day (Wednesday 6 February) - bringing sport and entertainment together to create a unique festival of cricket.
In their only Wellington performance this summer, the band will entertain fans between the WHITE FERNS v India and the BLACKCAPS v India T20 matches, playing a set of their chart-topping hits.
Drax Project, who began as music students busking on the streets of Wellington, have found global success with global recording deals, their own live shows and opening for international artists such as Ed Sheeran, Lorde and Camila Cabello.
The band were recognised in November 2018 winning both Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Single of the Year at the 2018 New Zealand Music Awards.
Drax Project frontman Shaan Singh said the opportunity to play at Westpac Stadium was huge for the group.
“Growing up in Wellington, playing at the Stadium has always been something we’ve really wanted to do. Most of the band are well into their cricket too, so putting the two things together should make it a quite special day for us” he said. “Being half Kiwi and half Indian, it’s the absolutely perfect match to be playing at. I’ll be claiming a win whatever happens!”
