The stage is set for June 3rd and 4th, when Whitianga will be transformed into a “Village Of Music”, as the Mercury Music Festival returns.
Building on the success of the first Mercury Music Festival, they will again be warming up your Queen’s Birthday weekend with two days of world class musical talent which covers an amazing variety of genres from blues, reggae, rock and indie, to funk, gospel and jazz.
With support of local businesses and the TCDC, the organisers will create a “Village of Music” out of central Whitianga. The “Village” will comprise a fan-trail-inspired festival atmosphere with stalls, buskers and talent, connecting our two main venues - the Whitianga Hotel Garden Bar and the Town Hall - with surrounding bars and restaurants. The centre of Whitianga will become a hub of song, dance and fun for vistors and locals alike.
