NOSTALGIA FESTIVAL

NOSTALGIA is a unique summer experience held within the 1900s replica township of Ferrymead Heritage Park.

Nestled in the heart of Heathcote Valley, NOSTALGIA unites the community through the magic of music, showcasing a curated selection of feel-good New Zealand and international artists. Wind through the vintage festival streets to discover incredible local food, craft drinks, roving theatre, markets and more.

NOSTALGIA’s values are simple: we strive to create a unique festival that integrates the Christchurch community through celebrating collaboration, creativity, event sustainability and quality music.

NOSTALGIA aims to have as minimal effect on the land as possible, continuously working towards implementing and trialling new sustainable initiatives. The team at Our Daily Waste works with festival vendors to minimise and control festival waste. Reusable cups and wash stations are provided throughout the park.

NOSTALGIA encourages festival-goers to cut down on transport used by ride-sharing, private or public buses, and of course biking. Our popular Bike Gang will be happening again this year so make sure to join our mailing list for more information.
