After yet another sold out event last year, Fuzen Entertainment have unveiled an impressive first instalment of international and local artists heading to Mangawhai for the three day Northern Bass music festival.
But there is so much more to Northern Bass than its formidable musical offering - it's a huge party and sensory experience - where fans celebrate music, friendship and the New Year, surrounded by lush greens hills, lagoons and trees.
Whether camping onsite, staying locally, in our glamping Bass Hotel or commuting, Northern Bass offers a festival experience second to none!
“We can’t wait to share the next phase of Northern Bass’s evolution with our audience” says promoter Gareth Popham. “Our goal, as always, is to deliver the best event possible and this year will be no exception. 2016/17 will also see us continue towards our target of true sustainability and will feature the return of the Northern Bass Green team and the hugely successful Globelet reusable cup programme.”
