For those interested... it usually rains on the Friday, burns over the weekend and then turns weird again on the Monday of the long holiday weekend. But the atmosphere is great. This is a small festival of a few thousand ppl held on an Agricultural Showground site. Kiwi's are self-sufficient, there is no beer tent, you bring your own food and drink. Not the best festival for late night/all night jamming sessions for some reason. But you never know. Just depends who's there.
