JUST ANNOUNCED: Bay Dreams Launching Nelson Festival

Known as one of New Zealand’s most popular summer festivals, Bay Dreams is turning up the dial and taking the magic south by launching a Bay Dreams: South Island edition in 2019.

Bay Dreams will be held again on January 2 at Bay Park in Mount Maunganui. But for the first time ever, a sister event will follow in Nelson at Trafalgar Park on January 4, 2019.

Since its debut in 2016, the festival has gone from strength-to- strength, selling out the past two events, and with the 2018, drawing a record-breaking crowd of 25,000 people through the gates in Mt Maunganui.

Bay Dreams also has a hard-earned reputation for attracting some of the biggest names in music from around the world. Over the three years that it’s been held, the festival has hosted the likes of Pendulum, Yelawolf, Shapeshifter, Sticky Fingers, Peking Duk, DJ Snake, Kehlani, Foster The People and many more!

Organisers are promising yet another talent-packed line-up of both international hit-makers and much-loved local acts for 2019.

The Bay Dreams: South Island edition will run similarly to the North Island event, with gates opening early afternoon and finishing around 10.30pm.

More information on ticket sales and next year’s stellar line-up will be released in the coming months. So stay tuned!
