A laid-back festival in chilled out Raglan is the epitome of a classic Kiwi summer, which is why Soundsplash is so popular. 

A three-day eco-focused music festival, Soundsplash is held in the stunning setting of Wainui Reserve, just 500 metres from Ngārunui beach.

It all makes for a fun-filled festival, packed with community spirit and good vibes.
