Rock Fest 2017

Totara St, 11 Totara St, Mt Maunganui, Bay of Plenty

Saturday 28 October 2017 5:30pm – 11:55pm   R18 Tickets: General Admission $15

Mt Maunganui’s annual Rock Fest, held at the fantastic Totara St venue. A total of 8 bands will be performing with all profits, (after expenses), going to the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society. This is definitely B.O.P’s rock event of the year, with last year being a great success. It’s about creating a fantastic rock event & celebrating our awesome independent kiwi rock music, with bands coming from Hamilton, Auckland & locally. The annual Rock Fest is the heart of our rock community in Tauranga/Mt Maunganui.

The bands this year:
– Coridian.
– Remote.
– The Eternal Sea.
– The Carradines.
– Battlecat.
– Play Big.
– Deathnir.
– Apollo Steamtrain.

The vibrant and dymanic work in our featured image slider is the work of talented local artist and gallery owner Mira Corbova-Smith of The Art Lounge, Devonport Road, Tauranga.   Mira’s work is expressive of many moods – here the mood perfectly suits the energy of the event and the dynamism of Kingsley Smith and his team!
