BW Summer Festival celebrates Guinness World Record success!
BW Summer Festival celebrates Guinness World Record
Zealand. ‘BW Summer Festival’ in association with
The Edge Radio, is proud to celebrate Guinness World Record
On the last day of 2013 more than 3,000 people
gathered at Gisborne beach to cheer on 745 excited skinny
dippers. The group of naked festival goers took to the
water, staying out in the ocean for over five minutes
splashing and swimming.
“The skinny dip is a great way
to let your hair down on the last day of the year. Those who
took part have made Guinness World Record history with the
most people skinny dipping at one time. We plan to keep the
event on the programme for years to come and hope to attract
an even bigger group next New Year’s Eve,” says Toby
Burrows, BW Summer Festival Director
Not only is Gisborne
one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it’s also
the first place in the world to see the sun on New Year’s
Day. This unique corner of the world has long attracted
international travellers and Kiwis alike.
The BW Summer
Festival has been home to campers for the past 11 years and
includes a line up of the country’s top musical acts at
the Jim Beam Soundshell.

The Complicatist: Blue Eyed & Soulful
For a while in June, the top two singles on the US Billboard charts featured Iggy Azalea, an Australian model turned hip hop performer. To some, this may seem like just the latest chapter in a long saga of whites ripping off black culture, while enriching themselves in the process. Obviously, there’s some truth in the stereotype. Yet it can also obscure the positive collaborations – in jazz, soul music and hip hop – between musicians who treated each other as creative equals, race regardless. More>>
Satire: Carry On Captaining
Oh hello. Scanner Technician Davis. To what do I owe the pleasure?
You think we’re what?
Oh, pish. This vessel has been travelling along smoothly for generations – particularly smoothly in the last few years though I say so myself – and I happen to know we have never once been hit by an asteroid... More>>
