NORTHERN BASS
ACCOMMODATION

Camping on­site = the best option!


For the full Northern Bass festival experience, camping onsite is the only option.

Camping Passes


Grab your mates and get right into the NB experience at our onsite campground! The NB campground has everything you need for your stay on Worsfolds Farm – food stalls, hot showers, a powder room, security and even a bar.

To camp on­site you will need to purchase a Camping Pass as well as your event ticket. Same deal goes for those bringing campervans on­site – you will need ONE Campervan Pass per vehicle, but each person staying in the campervan will need to purchase an individual camping pass.

Camping Passes are exchanged for a camping wrist band when you arrive on site. No camping wrist band = no access to the camp ground.

You can stay for one, two or three nights, depending on the type of Northern Bass ticket you get. So if you want to buy a 2 Day Camping Pass you’ll need the Two Day Northern Bass ticket.

Campervans


If you are planning to bring a campervan to Northern Bass this year, you will need to get a Campervan Pass. You need ONE Campervan Pass per vehicle, but each camper in the vehicle also requires their own Camping Pass

PLEASE NOTE:

● Stationwagons, vans, utes and campervans only. No smaller cars (hatchbacks/sedans) are permitted.
● There is no power or water to campervans.
● You MUST take all grey water with you.
● Due to limited space we do not permit additional tents in this area – if you want a tent next to your vehicle, you will need a Campervan PLUS Pass.
● Please email info@northernbass.co.nz prior to booking if your vehicle is longer than 5m.

Campervan PLUS


If you want a tent next to your vehicle we have a limited number of Campervan PLUS Passes. This pass will allow you to put up a maximum of two 3m x 3m tents next to your vehicle.

You need ONE Campervan PLUS Pass per vehicle, but each camper in the vehicle AND in the tents also requires their own Camping Pass.

We have multiple bars on site, including one right by the campground. You are able to take any alcohol bought on site into the campground.

You can bring breakfast and snack foods that do not require cooking, empty or sealed/unopened non­alcoholic drinking containers limited to six per person. There is no limit to the size of these, but please think about the waste created (and that you need to carry them in!).

We have FREE water fill stations on site, consider bringing one bottle that you can refill.

PLEASE NOTE:
Due to fire risk: no gas cookers or open fires of any type are permitted in the campground or anywhere on the festival site.

Campervans will not be permitted to re­enter the venue if they leave.

We will assist you where we can, but you will need to carry your gear from the carpark to your campsite – so travel light! Please DO NOT bring tent mallets/hammers. These WILL be confiscated. We have a number of mallets on site that you can use instead.We do our best to keep the toilets as clean as possible – PLEASE do let someone know if there are any issues.
