What to Bring

Musical stuff

This is a bluegrass festival.  ’nuff said.

Print out your Kiwigrass confirmation and your accommodation booking confirmation and bring it with you or load it to your phone. When you get to Kiwigrass accommodation and wrist band pick up will be separate.

Camping and bunk room accommodation

  • Linen and summer bedding
  • Towels
  • Soap for the showers

This is the Waikato. It will be warm, it can rain, and the sun can beat down.  Most of the concerts and workshops will be indoors, but bring a hat or other shade for outdoor events. There is a swim beach on the lake if you need to cool off.

  • Sun Hat
  • Towel & togs
  • Insect repellent
  • Umbrella, sunshade
  • Rain gear – just in case!
