What it all means is that if you have a ticket to the festival there's even more on offer. If you don't have a ticket there are still 3 stages full of entertainment that is 100% FREE to the public.

So come and check out the entertainment, sample the food and beverage options, soak up the sun and enjoy the beautiful Wellington waterfront for a few hours (Entertainment is suitable for all ages).
