Barrett Homes Sponsored River Range Festival 2018

We would like to thank everyone who helped to make River Range 2018 happen!

River Range Music Festival was born from an idea between two local Cromwell musicians who spoke of enjoying an afternoon in the sun, surrounded by mountains, having a few beers, connecting with like-minded people and listening to other local bands. The idea quickly gained traction to become an event that the Cromwell community can be proud of and one where music lovers can enjoy the best of local talent in their own backyard. With the support of local businesses, friends, family and community groups, the two musicians were able to bring their vision to Cromwell.

Barrett Homes decided to Sponsor River Range and be a part of this day that brings the locals together. To keep everyone hydrated we supplied free water bottles. The festival has continued to grow with 2018 being the fifth edition of the festival. With 16 bands across two stages and some very special guests including international drum & bass act Concord Dawn, as well as Queenstown favourites Panther Claw and Invercargill dubstep band Rhythmonyx, as well as many more local bands from Otago, Southland and Canterbury.
