Raglan’s boutique, eco-focused, three-day Soundsplash Festival is returning in early 2019, with an epic first line-up just announced.
Presented by ZM, the festival includes international big hitters Sticky Fingers and Macky Gee, alongside some of the most exciting Kiwi acts making waves across the globe, including SACHI, Theia, Louis Baker and Marlin’s Dreaming.
Soundsplash will once again be held in Raglan’s Wainui Reserve on Friday, January 18, Saturday, January 19 and Sunday, January 20.
Respected and renowned for its focus on the environment and also its reputation as being a festival run by music lovers, for music lovers, Soundsplash covers all bases when it comes to genre, with organisers curating an exciting line-up with acts from all over the world.
With its stunning location, just 500 metres from the beach and a short drive from the Raglan township and some of the world’s most famous surfing spots, Soundsplash is understandably one of New Zealand’s most popular summer festivals.
Held across three days, and three stages, organisers are also going the extra mile in 2019 to ensure production levels are top notch. Also notable, is the festival’s ongoing commitment to its Zero Waste policy. And in 2019, Soundsplash will proudly be the first-ever accredited "plastic bag free" festival in New Zealand.
It all makes for a fun-filled, community-minded event, which focuses on all ages and also families, with lots of healthy food options, camping with hot showers, and workshops, which offer everything from arts and dance, to nutrition, health, yoga and education around teen suicide, depression and anxiety.
