At Fannypac, we love going to gigs. We’ve put together a complete list of all music festivals taking place across our great country so that you can plan your road trip or time off work accordingly! See you out there!
Rhythm & Vines (28-31/12/18)
The big boy of all music festivals in NZ. RnV has long been a must-do rite of passage for thousands of kiwis. 3 days of music and festivities on Gizzy’s sunny coast. With artists such as Chase & Status, Netsky, Carl Cox & more, it’s sure to be a blast.
Rhythm & Alps (28-31/12/18)
A spin off cousin of RnV, this festival is set amongst the Southern Alps. With a similar lineup to RnV, RnA is a new years festival for those seeking a different view.
The favourite summer festival of many. What was once a bi-annual event, is now an annual one. An all ages event bang on the beach with performers, art installations, workshops and a good vibe all around it’s easy to see how Splore is one the favourite festivals in NZ
Kiwi music at the forefront here. Everyone from Shapeshifter to Shihad have played along the Wellington waterfront at Homegrown. Has sold out 5 years in a row so get your tickets quick.
Laneway Festival (29/1/18)
About 3 years old, this Melbourne festival has made it’s way to Auckland and caters to the indie/hipster crowd. Some great artists on the bill every year. Check it out for some fun in the sun.
Auckland City Limits (3/3/18)
A new entry to the Auckland festival circuit in 2018, it kicked off with a bang with artists like Phoenix & Tash Sultana on the lineup.
If reggae in the sun is your thing then Raggamuffin is the gig for you. Performers such as UB40, Shaggy and more will keep you bobbing away.
Highlife NYE Festival (31/12/18)
Northern Bass (29-31/12/18)
Bassheads unite! This 3 day festival is quickly rising up the ranks to beat the likes of RnV with their production, lineup and organisation. Just an hour our of Auckland, it just makes sense.
