Final Programme and Last Minute Information

Only two sleeps away from the Mercury Music Festival and we are ready party and play. Weather-wise we may experience some rain on Saturday, and Sunday is looking great. No matter the weather, we are geared up with cosy under-cover venues. The Whitianga Hotel Garden bar is now enclosed and the Town Hall and Ray White are weather independent. Our Whitianga “Village” of Music will make a perfectly cosy place to enjoy your Queen’s Birthday Weekend.

Below is our final programme of music, of all genres, from international, nationwide and local artists. For more information, go to our link Festival Line-Up, where you can sort by genre and have a listen to our stable of talent. A daily or weekend pass buys you literally free-range listening over the two days of the festival. Tickets can be purchased online at EventFinda, or in person at the Whitianga iSITE on Albert St. Tickets will be available at Festival HQ, 20 Monk St, but there will be a surcharge, so best to buy now.

On arrival, please go to Festival HQ to trade your ticket for a wristband, colour-coded to your ticket variety. Festival HQ will open each morning at 9.00 am so come early to avoid the queue. This wristband will gain you entry into the three main concert venues. Please wear it at all times. NO WRISTBAND – NO ENTRY.
