A three-day dance odyssey in the idyllic rural setting of Tauherenikau
Experience Wairarapa's most epic dance festival. Dubbed a three-day dance odyssey, 121 Festival will feature top-tier international, emerging, and heritage musicians and artists across multiple stages.
Along with the live acts, the festival promises a whole lot of fun beyond the main stages. You can find yourself at a disco or jamming to techno in a concrete tunnel. Enjoy premium coffee or delectable local beer, browse the many vintage retail stalls, or take a freshwater swim in the river.
With a diverse line-up of musicians and the stunning Tauherenikau Racecourse setting, 121 has all of the ingredients for an incredible and not-to-be-missed festival.
You’re invited to spend three days and two nights camping among the 2000-year-old Kahikatea trees and celebrate late summer under some of the darkest, star-filled skies in the Southern Hemisphere.
121 Festival has a range of camping options available including premium and general camping, as well as eco-friendly teepees. You can also choose to stay in accommodation nearby.
Full line up release
Taking place across six stages at the picturesque Tauherenikau Racecourse, 121 Festival will be showcasing more than 40 international and national artists playing house, techno, dub, roots, jazz, soul and hip-hop over three days. Joining our headlining acts is a full and not to be missed line up!
