Slide into summer at Soundsplash

View the map


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.

Surf and swim, camp with coastal views and dance the night away with hundreds of other happy revellers. 

An all-ages event, Soundsplash caters for families as well as the young and young at heart. Alongside the stellar line-up of international and local musicians, there are healthy food options, workshops on wellbeing, arts, dance and a strong commitment to sustainability with a zero-waste policy and, in 2019, a ban on plastic bags.

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