Summer Breeze Festival 2018


Set next to the stunning Tararaimaka River at the Old Cheese Factory, Summers Breeze is a sunshine blend of live electronic dance and folk music, art, fire performance, yoga and positive vibrations. Dwell within idyllic natural surroundings with like-minded people. This boutique festival sells only 100 tickets. Limited camping is available on-site for only $10 per person per night. This year Summer Breeze has extended the program to include Friday night and Saturday night. Camping bookings essential: email Full program information is available on the Summer Breeze Facebook page. Friday 6-12pm – unplugged acoustic magic around the fire. We are turning off the sound system and taking a breath of sweet music straight from the source. After a shared kai, come spend a magical night by the fire with the exotic improvisations of الرمال الهمس aka “The Sands Whisper” and the conscious acoustic roots of singer songwriter Tihikura. Tune in to a high love vibration with the sweet vocal creations of OM ZO unplugged. Bring your own songs to share by the fire during Pass the Guitar (acapella, poetry and stories also welcome) or join the Blacklight Workshop hosted by Min White and Kati Quest. Finish the night off with some wild dancing to a Bring-Your-Own Drum Circle. This is going to be a night to remember! Saturday 9am-8pm – soak up the community vibes. The Saturday sunshine hours are a time to nurture your wellbeing with like-minded friends. Join Thrive Yoga and The Yoga Space by the riverside for yoga to the sounds of native birds, join a Sharing Circle, have a jam in the Tribal Chai Lounge, take a tour of the Molloy Gallery, book in some mirimiri. Lay out the picnic blanket for the Saturday sounds. Opening the stage up with Indonesian reggae, funky loops, and sweet voices from Rizki, Rory, Tihikura, and Paris Cooper, الهمس الرمال and Tihikura. Saturday 8pm-3am – Dance party in the forest! Let loose and shake free! A unique line-up of live in the moment electronic dance music from Taranaki locals OM ZO, Synth Club, Playcycle and Ed Pool, capped off with stomping DJ sets into the early hours. Sunday 6:30am – 2pm – dwelling in the last of the Summer Breeze. Early risers (and late to bed dancers) will get to join in mediation to the dawn chorus to kick the day off (or round the night off).
