The Twisted Frequency Festival is located in the north of the South Island. We ended up here due to an overheating problem with our car. Luckily it happen right in the beginning of our long trip down south to Queenstown. We were stranded in Motueka, a small village close to the Abel Tasman Track, where we had to make new plans under these new conditions.
We hitchhiked to the festival and as fate would have it, we could also join the volunteers to get a good insight behind the scenes of the organisation team and of course the ticket costs back. The location was well selected inside a valley with a river next to it.
Since the New Zealanders don’t celebrate New Year with firework, having about 2000 people around us for these special time of the year turned out to be the best decision.
