In Photos: CubaDupa Festival

Monday 26th March 2018

Hundreds packed out Wellington's iconic Cuba Street for a weekend of shows, art displays and music.


Despite the wet weather, CubaDupa drew a massive crowd for its fourth year running. Traffic was diverted and the entire Cuba quarter was transformed into a symphony of colour. 

Organiser set up seven stages where 130 acts gave over 200 performances during the free, two-day event. 

As well the performances, food stalls, outdoor bars, costume competitions, and street parades kept everyone entertained.
