Nest Fest

Saturday 15 January 2022

After a SOLD OUT festival in 2020 & 2021 - New Zealand’s very best indie festival NEST FEST is back for its fourth year & counting for 2022.

It’s the place to catch all of your favourite live acts as well as being the one weekend to reveal all of the acts you didn’t even know you loved yet.

It’s the continuing story of a community of artists and an engaged inclusive audience that is reshaping the musical landscape of Aotearoa. 

Come January 15th, 2022, Hawkes Bay will play host to over 50 acts  throughout one magical weekend.

Nest Fest strives to embody its core principles of inclusivity, self expression and free love. We celebrate diversity and encourage the inclusion of all genders, ethnicities, genres and backgrounds.

This diversity is also reflected in our stella lineup of artists. You can count on a spectrum of sounds from Indie Rock, to Hip-Hop, from Dance, to Soul, From Punk to Comedy and everything in between. Ultimately, we aim create a safe place for our fans & artists to enjoy what really matters in life - Music & good people. For more information about the event head over to
