The Riverside Music Festival 2020 will have plenty for the entire family to see and do.
A music festival billed as a “multimedia, multicultural extravaganza” with a large dollop of climate action is set to draw hundreds to Lower Moutere on Sunday.
The biennial Riverside Music Festival from midday on Sunday will feature bands, dance, theatre, poetry, magic, video and circus performances.
Riverside Music Festival organiser Verena Gruner said this year’s festival was expected to “be the biggest yet”.
A focus on climate action and climate awareness would see plenty of workshops and conversations around the topic, she said.
“It’s really around community building and getting people together to appreciate what we have, to protect our environment and give exposure to people that are already doing good things.”
There will be talks from leaders in environmental sustainability, including the Green Party’s Chloe Swarbrick, who will also be running a workshop.
The market stalls will centre around second hand, upcycled and recycled while the food will be “healthy homemade food” – local, organic and sustainably sourced. It’s also a zero-waste event.
Heading the evening music line-up will be Kallidad from Australia, Nelson’s Rabbit Hole and Tillerman from Motueka.
Riverside Music Festival, Sunday, February 16, 12pm to 11pm at Riverside Community, Lower Moutere. Tickets $25 for adults, $15 for children and $60 for a family.
