Coro Summer Fest 2019 - Pre Release Tickets available now at only $60

  The lushest boutique festival is just around the corner! (well, O.K it's still winter but I can definitely smell summer in the air) Lock in the date: January 12, 2019.

  We've got an amazing lineup coming together for this one, including a couple of acts that are all-time personal favourites of ours, we are so excited to be bringing them to Coromandel for the first time. The full lineup will be announced in October, so for now you'll just have to trust us :)  We love putting this event on, and we are so grateful to you for supporting it and giving us the confidence to book fantastic acts that we personally love. 

  In order to continue to deliver a fantastically special event, while reducing the number of attendees, we are increasing the ticket price slightly this year. General release tickets will be $75 (teens $50, under 12's free) We will be putting energy into creating better event infrastructure, to make for a more enjoyable festival experience and to take the pressure off our local neighbourhood.

  As a way of acknowledging your support, and saying thank you for being part of the Coro Summer Fest, we are offering a limited run of pre release tickets at $60. There are only 100 tickets available at this price, and they are only available until September 1st, when general release tickets are made publicly available.

To secure your pre release ticket, just head to our online shop here:

Ticket does not include on-site camping, this is a seperate ticket - also more limited than in previous years. There is a great camp ground down the road - the Top 10 Holiday Park - if you wish to stay off site instead. We don't include camping in the ticket because being a community festival at heart, many attendees live locally.
You'll be able to book on-site camping from September 1st.
