121 Announcement

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of 121 Festival 2022.  We are devastated by the impact this will have on our staff, artists, production crews, suppliers, and vendors whose livelihoods rely on events like ours.

We believe that many of you will want to join us next year. Therefore your tickets will be automatically transferred to 121 Festival 2023. If, however, you feel unable to commit now, you can apply for a refund. A time window for refunds will be from February 21st to March 7th 2022.

We will now take time to re-centre our energy and focus our efforts on creating a wonderful festival experience for you in 2023.

General info

Join us on March 11th-13th for another euphoric 3-day dance odyssey among ancient Kahikatea trees, camping under the famously dark, star-filled skies. Immerse yourself in our carefully curated wonderland designed to fuel creative expression through art, music, and culture.



Drift through a moon-lit forest before succumbing to the party: be it straight up disco euphoria in a Victorian ballroom, virtuoso musicianship on the live stage, or an unforgettable main stage set from one of our headliners - we have it all.

A little vintage retail therapy never goes amiss, nor a new tattoo or last-minute haircut. Located at the center of the festival, take a wander around the 121 onsite markets between sets and fill up on their wares.
