With community the central icon on it’s metaphorical flag, Festival One comes across a little different. Born in the dusty summer of 2015, the festival has now run continuously for 4 strong years. Each year a wave of sun-soaked people from around the tiny islands of New Zealand come together and pitch their tents with intense expectation.
Over the last 4 years bands such as Switchfoot, Gungor, All Sons & Daughers, Bethel Music, Tenth Avenue North, The Brilliance along side speakers Rikk E. Watts, Sam Bloore, two tonnes of free meat and a vibe that struggles to be explained have greeted these pilgrims. Below is a brief outline of each Festival so far.
