Gig Information

This event is held within the beautiful Cobb valley of Golden Bay. Surrounded by gorgeous natural wonders and close to many beaches, forests, rivers and scenic attractions. Twisted Frequency Festival has become a staple within the South Island outdoor festival scene and is New Zealand’s fastest growing festival of its type. With a strong focus on underground, experimental & eclectic electronica blended with a balanced mix of live music, performers and so much more.

TWISTED FREQUENCY FESTIVAL has something for everyone spread thickly out over 3 outdoor stages.


We aim to take the listeners on a complete journey from the beginning of the festival to its end and strive to create a unique musical experience for all. Opening up new appreciations and ways of thinking & letting collaborations form and grow inspired by flow and diversity within the community.

Bringing one of the biggest and broadest line ups of international and local producers, DJs and live acts to Te Waipounamu and combining that with a true kiwi artistic aesthetic promoting natural design and graff culture. All nestled within natural surrounds it is not surprising to see how Twisted Frequency Festival has grown over the years. With that said we are nearing our expected capacity and in an effort to keep this event intimate in nature we are limiting the available tickets for this year’s instalment. Huge festivals are great but something which makes our culture so awesome is the smaller numbers which means we all can get the most out of our time away, connect with everyone as well as better preserve the lands and waters for the years to come.

Twisted Frequency Festival boasts 2 main Musical stages. The ‘Taniwha’ and the all new ‘Village Stage’ each with its own direction and style.

Relax and unwind at the Chill Stage. Enjoy Ambient, Downtempo and all sorts of weird and wonderful experimental music.

This year we are excited to announce the addition of the 'Open stage' Featuring: Multitudes of talented musicians sharing their sound, Open mic freestyle hip hop sessions, Poetry and spoken word performers and an opportunity for anyone to bring their instrument or their voice into the mix during the daily open jams. As well as the new Techno, House and Minimal zone 'Lavish Habits' Brought to you by the good people at Bat Dog & Day 2.

Work-shops this year are planned to curate a daily focus on subjects such as sustainable living, perma-culture and achieving positive change. Learning from the past and planning for the future where speakers will discuss the rapidly changing reality of technology and how it will effect us in the years to come as well as look back on lessons and ideas we have been gifted by our ancestors. Creative skill sharing. Learn a craft or hone your knowledge of electronic and live music production, and much more.

Comedy at Twisted Frequency was a new and welcome addition to the last event and this year we plan on going bigger and better with another stellar line up of stand up comedians organised by the crack up cats at Grandpa figs.

The Marketplace will provide a delicious array of local food, produce and various interesting wares from gifted artists and craftspeople.

Expect a treat for all the senses. Over the years, we have brought a variety of visual artists into the mix and this year will be no exception. Expect a range of interesting sculpture, art, festival decor, live graffiti, visual performance, projections and laser shows.

Two new additions to the experience on offer this year are the 'Creature lab cinema' showing all sorts of interesting films as well as 'Heimen-kō' a datamosh pit of strange ambient noise, mid-tempo, experimental and live psychedelic music paired with corrupted footage to scramble your retinas and scintillate your eardrums.

The Twisted Frequency Festival collective have always had a strong focus on high quality audio and strive to provide the ultimate audio visual outdoor experience. Since our inception we have been teamed up with the good people at Immersion audio to bring one of the finest and best tuned outdoor sound systems in New Zealand up from Canterbury and into the forests of Golden Bay. This Year we are also collaborating with Infinite Audio & Sacral Sounds. Together 3 powerhouses of outdoor music.

There are two main camping areas at Twisted Frequency Festival. Attendees are welcome to camp where they like and can camp with their vehicles. (weather and space permitting) The site is easy to travel around and while we encourage those willing to bring their bicycles it is not necessary to get around the site as the camping area, zones and amenities are all easily walked to. There are no pass outs for this year’s festival so it is important to be prepared for your stay. Please check out our website for advice on what to bring and pack accordingly.
