NZ's newest outdoor summer music festival

Coming to Tairāwhiti Gisborne for Labour Weekend

Setting a longline is a quintessential part of the kiwi summer and is best served with cold drinks, good music and great company.

The Longline Classic is a summer festival across multiple stages, that aims to bring people together from all over the country to metaphorically set the Longline in Gisborne.

We're uniting some of NZ's best live music and electronic acts with plenty of food, drinks and friends, at a very unique outdoor location.

Held over the iconic Labour Weekend, marking the official unofficial start to summer and most importantly the end of a long winter.

Round up your crew, pack in the car and hit the road. Let's kick into summer the right way. 

When: 22 October 2022

Where: Makaraka Racecourse, Gisborne  pad-top-default pad-bot-default vheight-default mike
