Something Else is a multi-day electronic music and performance art festival, set among nature in secluded North Canterbury.
The festival will feature multi-genre DJs + live bands in several different zones.
With a focus on being playful and respectful, participants are encouraged to actively collaborate with us to build an incredible weekend with art, workshops, costumes and performance.
Setting the festival over multiple days allows us to create an immersive environment as this allows us to channel extra effort into building amazing spaces.
An alcohol and glass-free event with a focus on harm reduction, Something Else is also a leave-no-trace event - we are all individually responsible for taking home everything we bring with us!
