This is one of the most "laid back" music festivals in New Zealand - a family orientated festival with lots of things for children to do. Featuring the best of local and international singer/songwriters and plenty of opportunities to perform in Blackboard Concerts.

Guest artists:
Julia Deans
From honey-sweet falsetto to menacing growl, the voice of Julia Deans has offered light and shade to a variety of musical endeavours over the years. From fronting Fur Patrol, to working with Tiki Taane and The Adults etc. She has now returned to NZ to step effortlessly into the role of solo artist – delivering some of her most exquisite songs yet in the beautiful debut album Modern Fables.

Anna van Riel
Straight off the back of her Whistle and Hum national album release tour, award winning grass roots musician Anna van Riel set sail for the United States and Canada on a three month Sustainable House Concert Tour - “Indeed an inspiration-wonderful and fun. Carry this forward!"
- Guy, Thetis Island, Canada

Cam Scott
Cam brings a rock inspired vibrancy to the NZ Country/Folk genre. With a high energy performance he brings the party wherever he goes.

Olli Ricken (Burly Berta)
The fabulous Acrobatic Clown combines with Anke Richter (Frau Messerschmidt) present Berlin Burlesque with a pretzel twist - wickedly clever clown theatre at its best - you will never hear the German language the same way again.
