A weekend of drumming and dancing. Located in the sheltered Okuti Valley, 3 miles from Little River on the Banks Peninsula, the Drum Festival is in at least its 10th year (we’ve lost count!). Usually it’s kind of a laid back weekend. Suitable for hippies to hipsters and everyone else, and you don’t even need a good beat to attend.
There will be a Kava cave and vegetarian food available, but brace yourself and BYO food. There is a kitchenette for cooking and hot showers available for $ 2 for 5 minutes. You just have to bring your tent, suitable clothes, because it can get cold. We will have a campfire both nights.
