Vision - New Year’s Eve Festival With a Difference


(a New Year’s Eve Festival With a Difference)

The Vision Festival is a celebration of music, art, sustainability, ideas and fun. It happens where the land meets the sea - at the base of Farewell Spit, Golden Bay, Aotearoa/New Zealand – from the 30th of December until the 2nd of January.

For four days and three nights, the Robinsons’ beautiful bush-fringed farm becomes a giant camp-ground for families, freaks, straights, greenies, hippies, farmers, youthful idealists and grandparents alike. Their aim: to see in the New Year amid some of the finest live and electronic music, perfomance and vibes to be found anywhere - and to help make a difference.

Vision is organised by the Visionz 2001 Trust - a charitable trust that aims to promote a sustainable future for this planet through the principles of organics, permaculture and cooperation. All proceeds from the party go towards funding projects both locally and nationally that will help achieve these aims. The trust is open to involvement and input from the community, and is working for love and hope, not money or status.

Vision is more than a party: it’s a demonstration of our will to change the way we live. As well as being able to absorb multiple musical and visual delights, a participant at Vision will be able to join workshops ranging from harakeke weaving to alternative energy. And your ticket directly contributes funds to projects that promote a healthy future for our planet.

The event has been run since 2000, and has gained a solid reputation for its ‘good vibe,’ great location and lip-smacking entertainment. Last year around 3000 people were there. An upper limit of 4000 tickets will be available this year, so get in quick because they’re sure to be in hot demand.
