Good vibes were everywhere at this year’s Edge of the World Music Festival.

For a start, new three-day tickets and a sweet audience appreciation price made this year’s festival extra family-friendly. The sunny weather was another bonus, as was the range of festival eats from the growing number of islands food trucks and new vendors.

And best of all, festivalgoers said they were well impressed by the visiting acts this year, with highlight shows by The Jerry Cans, Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Jesse Roper, MIP, and Mama Mihirangi & The Mareikura.
