Inverted Entertainment and SmashFest Open Air presents …
SmashFest X 2022
NZ’s heaviest new year camping experience at NZ's best live music venue returns to Gisborne's beachfront for its legacy 10 year anniversary show, promising the most insane summer METAL weekend to date!
The 10th instalment brings you the best underground metal and rock acts NZ has to offer, over a festival weekend at an exclusive campground with an array of unique and eclectic festival entertainment that will blow your minds!
If you haven't been yet, now is the time, with uncertainties looming we have worked extra hard to bring this event together and with a BandCamp upgrade, medieval combat, a metal sculpture symposium, an adult playground, glamping tents, markets stalls, artists exhibits, performance art and much much more ...... you'd be a fool to miss this one!
In addition to this killer weekend set, we have some epic entertainment lined up ...
• Nathan Hull Sculpture showcasing an original metal sculpture display with metal market stall.
• Art by Flynn Fredriksson will be delighting the senses with an epic art collaboration with Stellar, the SmashFest Queen herself!
• New Zealand Full Contact Medieval Combat will triumphantly return to fight the Battle of Midway for the SmashFest Shield and run medieval games at camp.
• An adult playground with giant bouncy castle, zorb balls and an ourdoor movie screen! Plus our usual suspects;
Centennial Conflict mans the massive merch treasure troves featuring ‘Skeletal Domain’ ornamental animal skulls plus food vendors, clothing and jewellery market stalls and odd entertainers...
And much more, in a strictly R18 environment.
