With its stunning location in Raglan, just 500 metres from the beach; as well as its focus on the environment, community and all ages, Soundsplash is understandably one of New Zealand’s most popular summer festivals. And with only limited tickets now available to the three-day event, music lovers are urged to get in quickly to avoid disappointment.

Acts will play across three stages with top level production. 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.

There will also be 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.
