Bay of Islands Country Rock Festival

12,13,14 May 2017

The Bay of Islands Country Rock Festival features good music and friendship in the stunning setting of the Bay of Islands of New Zealand - one of the top tourist spots of the country. Each year the festival features more than 50 acts from New Zealand and Australia performing at multiple venues. Street music and line dancing are also popular features.

FANTASTIC VALUE = You pay $60 and we give you more than 50 bands to watch perform over the three days of the festival. 


Day passes have been discontinued due to admin costs. You can buy a badge and enjoy as much music as you can manage over the weekend.

Check out the musicians, venues and news. We have details of accommodation available from our supporting hotels and motels, with phone numbers and links to their websites where available. Many musicians and fans book year to year, so make sure you don't miss out for the next festival.

For further information on the festival, contact organiser Shirley May.
