There is a choice of venues where you can listen to music during the festival. These are chosen to provide the type of atmosphere you are seeking, or the seating for your comfort at larger venues. You are free to move around to any of the venues with your badges.
There are four venues in Paihia and two in Russell, with a ferry ride between.
Accommodation is available at many of these venues. Click on links to make bookings so you can be near the action. We are also supported by many motels, hotels, lodges and backpackers in the area. Check out more options in our Accommodation section where you’ll find website links and phone numbers.
Russell offers a laidback vibe, with everything in easy walking distance and access to some of the best restaurants and cafes in the Bay.
