When you’re wearing seven layers of clothing and you still can’t beat the cold, here’s something to warm your heart. Festival One is returning in 2018 and the first artist announcement is on it’s way.
Music, Art & Community. Like the rhythm of a pulsing heart, these three things beat in the core of who we are. Music, Art & Community. Three practices in which we explore and find meaning. Music, Art & Community. Three forms of expression tying us into what it means to be human.
Join us at Mystery Creek, Hamilton on Auckland & Waikato Anniversary Weekend.
Picture this. A warm summers afternoon, sitting with a bunch of mates at the Music Box (a stage on the back of a truck) sipping on freshly squeezed OJ, listening to Strahan woo you with his silky tones. Imagine lining up with a plate, a knife and a fork, the smell of Argentinian style BBQ wafting past your nose, when a heap of fresh produce is lumped onto your plate, followed up by a nice thick cut of export quality beef. Imagine sitting in the One Arena surrounded by thousands of people, listening to some of the best theologians the world has to offer tackling some of the biggest questions in a natural, open conversation. Yeah well Festival One is something like that.
4 days, 3 glorious nights. Gates open 10am Friday and it is all on. Unload in the drop off zone, or just park. Scan in and off to set up your campsite with all your mates, setting free the inner creative and turning it into a sight to behold, a mini tourist destination if you will, for the throngs of Festival goers to gaze at in sheer wonderment. Let our amazing vendors cook for you, cook yourself or bring your own food across to the massive Argentinian Fire Grills and our BBQ chefs will cook it for you – apart from Saturday night where they will cook free meat for the whole Festival site!
