Thank you for your interest in performing at the Riverside Music Festival 2020:)
Riverside Music Festival is proudly sponsored by Riverside Community Trust, a charitable trust that furthers peace, education and the relief of poverty and infirmity in New Zealand. The trust was established by early members of Riverside Community, which was originally founded in 1941 by pacifists keen on establishing a society emphasising peace, equality and social justice. Today Riverside Community is NZ's oldest intentional community and is filled with a very diverse bunch of people who continue to promote the Trust's deeds and the founder's pacifist ideals.

We are looking for a variety of artists for supporting our vibrant and inspiring event on Sunday, 16th February 2020 from Midday to 11pm in sunny Nelson. This year, Riverside Community Trust, in cooperation with local Extinction Rebellion, focuses on the Climate Emergency and will feature activities supporting positive action in response to what we are facing.
Riverside Music Festival is an inclusive, drug and alcohol free, family friendly event and will include performances by musicians, dancers, physical theatre and circus artists. We will have our famous waterslide, art activities, games and pony rides set up for children's entertainment. Through interactive workshops, music and theatre, festival-goers will have the chance to reflect on the issues our planet is facing.
If you fancy a spot on our stage or would like to contribute your talents to a fabulous and meaningful event, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with us by filling out the form below.
