Big Day Out Queries

Kapiti College and New Wine have agreed that the 2022 festival at Raumati is too difficult to run under Covid-19 constraints. The two shorter New Wine Big Day Out festivals are our answer to gathering this summer.

We are planning New Wine’s Big Day Out in an ever changing political environment, however our understanding from government currently is that New Wine events will be legally required to ensure all attendees 12 years and over are double vaccinated. The New Wine registration systems will require evidence of vaccinations, pending government work in this area.

New Wine is committed to offer a festival that protects the health and well being of all attendees, and comments here specifically about Covid-19. This comment is written in an ever changing environment as the government works through its requirements for the summer, however our understanding is that a vaccine passport will be developed by the government before the summer.

We understand evidence of double vaccination will be through this passport and will be a mandated requirement for any larger public event. New Wine will adhere to this mandate requiring attendees 12 years and over to be double vaccinated with evidence supplied to New Wine as part of our registration system. This requirement will be updated to reflect current government requirements, however what is unchanging is if you are unwell please stay home.

The Important Stuff

Terms and Conditions are about making the event fun and safe for everyone. The deal is if you’re nice to yourself and your neighbours, our friendly stewards will be nice too. Here goes the fine print;

  1. Fees for New Wine are determined by age at 1 January in the year of the festival.
  2. Cancellations made more than 7 days prior to the event start date will receive a full refund less an administration fee of $30. There will be no refunds if cancellations are not advised, or are made within 7 days of the festival start date.
  3. Pets are not allowed on site – except aid dogs, regardless of how cute or cuddly they are and whether they can yodel to worship.
  4. After arrival, all vehicles used to unload to the camp site must be moved to the designated car parks.
  5. There will be official photographers on site at our events. Attendees may feature in images used for New Wine publicity. Any person wanting their image excluded must notify New Wine in writing and provide a recent photograph. While every care will be taken to exclude images of any such person, no liability will be accepted for any inadvertent error.
  6. Attendees must wear any issued name badges and wrist bands at all times during the festival.
  7. In the event of this festival being cancelled or the site being closed, New Wine will refund all registration fees on a pro rata basis once any expenses incurred up to and including the cancellation date have been allowed for. The Covid-19 full refund clause may nullify this.
  8. The information supplied on the registration form is for New Wine purposes.
  9. New Wine runs activities which may carry a risk of injury if carried out without due care or in disregard of instructions, the youth call this ‘fun’. While all practicable steps will be taken to ensure your safety, New Wine accepts no liability for any loss, injury or damage to your property or person.
  10. Strictly no drugs or drug paraphernalia on site – except for medical purposes. Anyone found in possession will be evicted from the site and refused further entry to the event. Any drug-related incidents will be dealt with by the event manager and referred to the police.
  11. If you’re unwell with conditions including diarrhea, vomiting or flu-like symptoms you need to stay home. Sickness can spread rapidly at an event like this and you don’t want to be ground zero should an outbreak occur.
  12. You agree to: obey any festival rules as advised during the event; notify us of any hazard or potential hazard identified; tell us if you can’t participate in any activity or there is anything (such as illness or injury) which may affect our decision to allow you to participate in any activity; not do anything which may put yourself or others at risk of harm.
  13. By registering you agree to receiving postal, text and email communication from New Wine, on the understanding that you may unsubscribe at any time.

A responsible adult must accompany all children under 18 years of age. If the parent or caregiver isn’t accompanying the child complete this form here.

Site Information

No, there will be no power or water for camping. We’re kiwi’s… we can tough it out (for one night!) and besides, New Wine has the cooking covered…. this is going to be an adventure!

Paraplegic facilities are available on these sites.

Sorry no…. but who needs to wash anyway during a 24hour Big Day Out.

We’ll have Stewards on hand to help you with this. This year we’ve got more camping field than we can possibly use, so will be running a freedom style camping site right in the middle of the festival grounds. You’ll be barely a stones throw from the heart of everything, which means all the camping cool cats will hang together.

You get a free tent site as part of your registration. It doesn’t matter if you camp on site or a take a holiday home off-site, the New Wine registration cost is the same.

Responsibility for your possessions rests with you. We suggest leaving valuables at home, use your car to lock valuables away or keep them on you.

Feeling Peckish?

Since we are providing food at this year’s festival, we’ve got you covered! No cooking facilities needed.

Festival prices for New Wine’s Big Day Out include food. The fare will be simple and good, but will only cater for gluten free. If you have dietary needs which are more complicated please bring additional goodies to supplement what New Wine provides.

Accomodation

Get back to nature and wake up in the morning to the sound of birdsong! We’ve got more camping field than we can possibly use, so will be running a freedom style camping site right in the middle of the festival.

On arrival check in to the registration desk by following the sign or our gorgeous Stewards. The streamlined rego team will let you know the new plan of things…. and even be able to register your 0-10 year old kids into their zone programme. 

Now you're getting fussy

The admin team are amazing, and will sort this for you.

If unpaid the admin team will be happy to take your money, and your “I’m sorry” chocolate bar, when you arrive and finish registering.

We do have eftpos machines but no credit card facility.

Yes, sure, maybe… the admin office should be able to help with a cash out transaction from the eftpos terminal.

The Fine Print (Always love 'em)

Please observe and respect our policy of separate sleeping accommodation for guys and girls. You know what we mean. No visiting either!

No elephanting around! Move quietly around the site between 11pm and 7am.

Any complaints should be directed to the admin office. If necessary a written statement will be requested and forwarded to an executive panel for appropriate action. New Wine commits to mitigating the concern in a timely manner and will advise the outcome accordingly.

The emergency assembly point is the front carpark. Any site concerns to Shane on 027 280 2384.

Pack down is always busy. Fancy giving us a hand? If so please make yourself available to help with the clean-up.

Feedback is appreciated. Facebook it or email admin@newwine.org.nz.

A first aid kit is available from the admin office. In an emergency dial 111 and flag down a steward.

Query? Ask at the admin office or a willing steward as they wander by.

You are responsible for your child’s safety outside session times. Please be mindful of session end times for collecting children.

There will be an official photographer on site. Attendees may feature in images used for our publishing purposes.

If you have something to share text 021 155 6197 or email admin@newwine.org.nz.

Please wear your name tag and wrist band at all times so our teams can identify you as a New Wine attendee.

Don’t. Ever. Certainly not in the New Wine festival smoke-free zone.

Responsibility for your possessions rests with you. We suggest leaving valuables at home, use your car to lock valuables away or keep them on you.

Please park in the designated parking areas. If tenting when finished your camp site set-up please reposition your car to the marked area adjacent.
