Soundsplash Timaru - All You Need To Know

Timaru is set to host its first ever Soundsplash this January. And with the three-day ALL AGES festival just over a week away, here’s a list of everything you need to know.

The first-ever Soundsplash Timaru takes place from January 17 to 19, 2020 at beautiful Caroline Bay - right by the beach and features some of the most exciting international and local names in music right now, including Peking Duk, Polo G, Dylan Frost (Sticky Fingers), Stan Walker, Tiki Taane, Sachi, Theia and Sons of Zion. See the full list of acts below.

Presented by The Edge and Mai FM, the star-studded line-up will perform across three stages. For those wanting to make the most of the three days, there’s camping available.

Meanwhile, promoters are also catering to those who can only make it to one day, with day tickets available for only $99.

Soundsplash Timaru is the sister festival to the long-standing event that’s been running in Raglan, which is also being held across the same dates – January 17, 18 and 19, 2020 – at Wainui Reserve on the picturesque west coast in the North Island.

Soundsplash has earned a reputation as one of New Zealand’s most popular and all-inclusive music events. It’s also celebrated for its attention to culture and sustainability. There is camping available at both locations and it is one of the few music festivals, which welcomes the whole family.
