WAITATI MUSIC FESTIVAL

By Katie Bourne & Tania Turei

The second family-friendly Waitati Music Festival is on Saturday February 16.
Bland Park on Almond Street is a great venue, providing space for all the family.
The stage area will be kicking out sounds from bands including Skulldubbery (reggae), Manthyng (dance), Scurvy Dogs (punk), Kill!Martha (progressive ukulele rock & rap), The FarqVards (The Pixies!), Superglue (rock & blues), The Osbournes (Celtic fusion), Gravemind (punk), Del, Carl Stevens and PKD. DJ Bent Coppa will be smoothing out the gaps.
There is a skate park, tennis courts and soccer pitch if you are feeling sporty, and a dedicated kids space for the little ones with face painting, entertainment and toys.
It's only $5 and kids are free! Bring a picnic or enjoy the ice cream van, coffee and food stalls. If you have a stall idea you would be welcome to join in, the more the merrier and it is a great fundraising opportunity!
A grant from Creative Communities NZ has meant we can work with Pro-event to ensure the sound quality will be fantastic! All we need is sunshine to make a perfect day!

Hi Laura,

I had a quick chat to Katie who is organising this, and she tells me there is no charge.

By the by, this is for the Music Festival and not the Car Boot Sale which is the next day.

Cheers,

Craig
