Festival One - Music, Art, Culture and Community.
January 27th - 30th 2017.

Festival One is a celebration – a celebration of art, music, creativity and community, centred around the Christian faith. It’s about what it is like to be part of a large family, enjoying each other’s company, being inspired by great conversations, and celebrating creativity with outstanding music from artists of many genres. It is about having a rhythm to each day – at times full on, other times chilling with friends and enjoying good food, or even a free BBQ for the whole Festival! It’s about seminars on a whole range of topics that invite and encourage discussion, and then more late night conversations! It is about discovering that exquisite band or artist that you have never heard of, but who is communicating and playing with great skill. It is a place where people of all ages can feel safe – drug and alcohol free – and running to values that respect the sacredness of human life. It is about meeting the people camping next to you and forming lifelong friendships.

And most of all, it is about celebrating the Christian faith which is the shared set of beliefs and ideals that brings this whole Festival together – fellow pilgrims on a journey towards the God of the Bible, and His Son, Jesus Christ. 

Book today, spread the word, and become a part of the community.

Who doesn't love a bargain? Check out the penny saving deals we are offering on ticket prices. 


  • Families come in all shapes and sizes. With so many different family structures it is hard to price an affordable, family-friendly festival for all combinations.
  • To make it easy, select one adult and at least 3 children/student tickets or two adults and at least 2 children/student tickets and we will give you 12% OFF the total ticket price (excl booking and transaction fees). Family tickets are only applicable to immediate family members.

Got work, concerned parents, Chinese New Year or temperamental pot plants and can't stay all three days? Have the best of both worlds! We've got a limited number of half-festival passes available for your convenience.

You can grab one for either Friday-Saturday or Sunday-Monday (sorry, no Saturday-Sunday passes). You will be allowed to stay on either Friday or Sunday night - whatever night your ticket allows! No Saturday nights, though. Gates and registration are open for entry from 10am on Friday, 9am on Saturday and 9am on Sunday and close at 10pm each evening. 

Want to make sure that everyone in your group can camp together in an allocated tent space? If you’ve got a large group of mates, a BIG youth group or large extended family, then you qualify to become a 'group'. To become an officially recognised group of 20 or more people email groups@festival-one.co.nz for further details.

If you are able to get 100 other people into your fan club then you can ‘check in’ early to help set up your group tent site. Pays off to bring your mates.

Tickets to Festival One 2017 will be priced in three tiers so make sure to grab your tickets earlier rather than later to make the most of the cheapest price possible.

We want you to get onsite as quickly as possible so you can spend more time with your mates and not in the queues! Simply tell us exactly where you live so your entry wristbands can be couriered out to your iTICKET shipping address. (NOTE: Wristbands will be dispatched in December.)

Access to the festival will be via Gate 0 on Airport Road. You can come and park your cars anytime from 6am on Friday the 27th January, and be the first to get onsite when the gates open at 10am.

We have a limited number of spaces of non-powered and powered sites available at Festival One. These are being released in stages, so get in quick! Check it out here

Please note: All ticket purchases incur a service fee.
•    $6 booking fee per ticket. Orders of two or more tickets will be capped at $12 per order.
•    A bank fee of 2.5% for the total transaction applies on all orders.
