The headline acts for the alternative music festival set to replace Hawera's Push Bike Pub Crawl will be a mix of hip-hop and New Wave in December.

Christchurch-born recording artist Ladi6, aka Karoline Tamati, will be joined by Auckland group Kids of 88 at the Egmont A & P Showgrounds on December 15.

Ladi6, currently appearing on the Smokefree television commercials, lived and toured in Europe during 2010-11.

Her two albums have made the top-10 of the New Zealand album charts, and she has won several New Zealand Music Awards.

Ladi6 will perform with her partner Parks, aka Brent Park, and Julien Dyne. Kids of 88 consists of Jordan Arts and Sam McCarthy and are probably best known for their 2009 hit single, My House.

They have also won New Zealand Music Awards and released their latest album last week.

The festival is being organised by the South Taranaki District Council as it attempts to create an event that phases out the town's infamous unofficial Push Bike Pub Crawl.

Tickets will go on sale on Thursday, November 1, and will retail for $32.50 plus booking fees - an increase from the $27 of the inaugural ALTfest last year.

In another change, there will be no BYO, although alcohol will be served at the venue. The event is R16 and identification will be required.

Gates will open at 1.30pm, with Taranaki acts performing 30 minutes later, followed by the headliners.
