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.
