A Gathering in the Forest festival launched

Since forming in 2013, Eyegum have made a name for themselves putting on events in houses, bowls clubs, community halls and bars. They’ve had hundreds of bands (both well known and lesser known) flow through and have launched their first nationwide tour with Madeira.

Having grown up going to Camp A Low Hums and Chronophoniums and seeing that there was little on the calendar (bar the beautifully conceived and awesome little fest that is NOW) Eyegum have realized that they needed to step up and do something about this.

Finding a beautiful isolated spot in the middle of the North Island with few neighbours to annoy, work is already underway to prepare the space for a beautifully intimate event.

Confirmed acts that will be appearing at the festival. Skux (AKL), Womb (WGTN), Beatcomber (WGTN), Goya (WGTN), Madeira (AKL), Jon Lemmon (WGTN), Soccer Practice (AKL), Heavy (AKL), A Girl Named Mo (WGTN), Dbldbl (AKL), Pussywhippers (WANG), Trip Pony (AKL), Castlecliff Lights (WANG), Levi Patel and Suren Unka (AKL), Draghound (WGTN), Hiboux (WGTN), Mothers Dearest (WGTN), Sea Views (AKL), Happy Plaster (WGTN), The Pleasure Majenta (AKL), plus a couple others TBA

Prices start at $60 for 2016, on January 1st tickets will cost $100
