Promoters confirmed earlier this year that Bay Dreams, which has been held on January 2 in the Bay of Plenty for the last three years, was getting a sister festival in sunny Nelson, on January 4.

Bay Dreams has established itself as New Zealand’s biggest festival, selling out year after year. And now with the event being held across two islands, and close to some of the best beaches and holiday hot spots in the world, it’s gearing up to be the highlight of the Kiwi summer. Both locations now boast two main stages for the first time.
