Sanctuary Sounds Incorporated Society

Sanctuary Sounds is a not-for-profit music festival showcasing an eclectic mix of music from all over New Zealand and Australia. The 3 day festival is held on a rural property in Takapau, Central Hawkes Bay. Camp for 3 days and enjoy the music, food, bar, stalls, and relaxed vibe!
  • The purpose of incorporating is to keep together the people that have contributed and want to continue to contribute to bring music and art to our Central Hawkes Bay community.

  • Buying a ticket to the event gives you the opportunity to become a member of the society. 

  • Because the festival is small by most standards (up to 300 people) the sense of being a part of it is strong and that reflects in the easy going atmosphere that always accompanies the event.

  • We've been running the festivals since 2006 and it has been a fantastic opportunity to showcase local musical talent and to provide a chilled out scene for people to hang out in the country and enjoy the day's and evening's entertainment.

  • We try to keep the prices of the tickets, bar and cafe down as we are a non commercial, non profit organisation.

  • Children 16 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.

  • We take great pride in offering the audience and the musicians epic sound from highly trained sound technicians and top of the line sound equipment.
