About

Rippon open air festival is run by a non-profit group by the name of Lake Wanaka SouNZ Inc., with the SouNZ part reflecting the pride in the quality of Kiwi musicians and their music. Lake Wanaka SouNZ Incorporated was set up in 1997; Rippon 2014 will be the tenth festival they have run.

Profits made from all festivals go directly back into future events and the Wanaka community.
Since the first festival in 1998, over $90000 has been put back into supporting music, youth, and the environment within the region. Plus other parts of Oceania during particularly yukko times.
