We're excited to share that the annual River Sounds Festival has concluded for the year and we're thrilled to report that it was a resounding success!


With the help of our amazing sponsors and attendees, we raised $20,000 for both Yellow Brick Road and Te Puna Hauora.

You can check out all the amazing moments captured by browsing through the photos on our Facebook page. We couldn't have achieved this without the invaluable support of our wonderful community. Thank you all for making this year's festival an incredible experience!



1pm Saturday, 11th February 2023 - 12am, 12th February 2023


The location is a stunning avocado orchard in Katikati, Bay of Plenty (30 minute drive from Tauranga), set next to a beautiful river available for swimming during the day. You can drive, camp overnight or jump on one of the buses (requires pre-booking to secure your ride!) camp sites and bus passes are available for purchase with your ticket. 


This is a not-for-profit, community focused music festival dedicated to raising awareness around mental illness and suicide.  All profits from 2023 ticket proceeds will be donated to Te Puna Hauora - Bay of Plenty and Yellow Brick Road


The Everyone Hurts Foundation. 


We want to deliver a music festival that is fun, engaging and celebrates the beauty that life has to offer. But we also want to  reduce the shame and stigma that surrounds mental illness. This is why we have curated an event that encourages open conversations about the challenges of living with mental illness because sometimes the most powerful connections are created from our most painful experiences. 

 If you have purchased a ticket but can no longer attend, resales can be made via Tixel:
