Bay of Islands Music Festival

Serving up an amazing mix of international and New Zealand roots, soul, funk and rock this summer.

An extraordinary line-up of roots, funk, country and rock artists will perform at the Bay of Islands Music Festival over two incredible days, 25 and 26 January 2020.

Headlined by Mr Boombastic himself, SHAGGY, Day One of the festival will also feature Jamaican reggae royalty TOOTS & THE MAYTALS, our queen of hip hop / RnB, LADI6, THE BLACK SEEDS, OTIUM and Northland’s very own ska and dancehall spinmaster DJ BIG G.

Day Two of the festival sees international rock gods WOLFMOTHER return to NZ for the first time in 3 years. They join kiwi rock legends SHIHAD and BLINDSPOTT for the biggest rock line-up ever seen in Northland! We kick off the day with the alt-country melodies of songstress MEL PARSONS, pop rock 3 piece VALKYRIE and the funky South American sounds of LATINAOTEAROA, Day Two is packed with musical goodness!
