FESTIVAL ONE IS BACK IN 2024 FOR OUR 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF MUSIC, ART, COMMUNITY AND FAITH. WE’RE BACK ON THE BEAUTIFUL KARAPIRO WHENUA, AT HARTFORD (JUST WITHOUT THE MUD!)
With community the central icon on it’s metaphorical flag, Festival One comes across a little different. Born in the dusty summer of 2015 the festival has now run continuously for 9 strong years - with a covid hiccup 2022 where we got stopped 4 days before gates opened and a weather cancellation 2023 where we had to close gates 24 hours after opening! Each year a wave of sun-soaked people from around the tiny islands of Aotearoa, New Zealand come together and pitch their tents with intense expectation.
Over the last 10 years bands such as Lauren Daigle, For King & Country, Switchfoot, Citizens, Kings Kaleidoscope, John Mark McMillan, NF, Rapture Ruckus, Social Club Misfits, Gungor, All Sons & Daughters, Bethel Music, Tenth Avenue North, The Brilliance, Halfnoise, and hundreds more, along side speakers Rikk E. Watts, Sam Bloore, Chad M. Johnson, Mary Bielski, two tonnes of free meat and a vibe that struggles to be explained have greeted these pilgrims.
We’re thrilled as ever to bring you our beautiful, musical extravaganza again this summer. Special guests include Charity Gayle, We Are Messengers with many more artists to be announced in the coming months.
Grab your tickets, gather your whanau and get excited! Festival One ‘24. Better than ever!
Caravan, Motorhome and Rooftop Tent Sites:
This is important as these sites sell really fast. Caravan sites are for those wanting their own slice of festival reserved over the weekend. Please come as self-contained as possible. That’s with solar panels, batteries, torches, water (no generators please), etc. If you can be self-contained with solar panels there’s no need to purchase in the powered section.
The size options are:
Large 5.5 x 16m
Standard Size 5.5 x 8m
Non Powered section:
Large 5.5 x 16m
Standard Size 5.5 x 8m
If you have a small caravan that doesn’t take up much space you’re welcome to pitch a small tent within your allocated caravan site. Roof top tent sites need to be booked as a caravan site. We aren’t permitted to allow people to camp inside their vehicles in the carpark.
Make sure you measure your space beforehand so you’re not disappointed.
