THE FESTIVAL LOW DOWN
1pm, 30th January 2021 - 1am, 31st January 2021
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 return shuttles (camp sites and car 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 ticket proceeds will be donated to Music Helps and Te Whare Mahana Trust.
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.
BENEATH THE SURFACE
“I desperately wanted everyone to see my pain, but I also put everything I had into hiding it”
The theme for the festival is ‘beneath the surface’ encouraging festival goers to share more than just the version of themselves we usually present to the world. The festival will be curated to encourage people to share these experiences, all while listening to amazing music and forming lasting connections.
