mercury bay music festival
Unfortunately, there will be no Mercury Bay Music Festival in 2018 - we're hoping they'll be back in 2019
The Mercury Bay Music Festival is a 2 day celebration held over Queen's Birthday Weekend for all ages covering a range of musical genres, from jazz, blues, folk, acoustic to world music.
Top artists from New Zealand, Australia and the USA will perform at centrally located venues within easy walking distance from the ferry to Ferry Landing.
Also on offer are workshops and masterclasses run by world class artists - from vocal techniques and songwriting to ukelele and guitar.
Flaxmill is located 1km from Ferry Landing and the passenger ferry across to Whitianga.
Full information and details about the 2018 event are on the Mercury Bay Music Festival website.
