The Bay of Islands Country Rock Festival features good music and friendship in the stunning setting of the Bay of Islands of New Zealand – one of the top tourist spots of the country. Each year the festival features more than 40 acts performing at multiple venues. Street music in Paihia and Russell also gives you a chance to enjoy the music as you dine at a nearby cafe or join in some linedancing.

FANTASTIC VALUE = You pay $80 and we give you more than 45 bands to watch perform over the three days of the festival.

Check out the musicians, venues and news. We have details of accommodation available from our supporting hotels and motels, with phone numbers and links to their websites where available. Many musicians and fans book year to year, so make sure you don’t miss out for the next festival.
