The first of its kind in Aotearoa, ‘First We Eat’ is a fresh, multi-sensory festival experience in the Bay of Plenty, that combines NZ’s leading musicians and culinary-creations by celebrity chefs, where guests will get to dine, drink and dance all day long.  

Set to kick off on Saturday 30th January at the Wharepai Domain, from midday through to 7pm, the line up will feature legendary headline acts including Dave Dobbyn and The Feelers, while a host of our influential chefs will curate their own themed ‘food streets’ featuring an array of unforgettable taste sensations.

Alongside renowned Kiwi musical talents including; Soaked Oats, LA Women and Alayna, we will see the exciting food offerings announced in the coming weeks. The crew of culinary stars will create an array of unforgettable taste sensations within each of the four food zones featuring; Sounds of the Sea, Plant Power, Rickshaw Ride and Stars and Stripes! 

The full day festival will be an opportunity to celebrate the people, tunes and tastes of Tauranga and the wider New Zealand music and food industry. Guests can expect to see boutique breweries, formidable NZ wine brands, and some intriguing creative connections between the musicians and the food offerings. 

With over 4000 guests expected to come together to eat, drink and celebrate the best music, entertainment and gourmet delicacies - it will truly be a festival of plenty. Thanks to a collection of NZ’s leading, multi-generational musicians, there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy. Guests can rock out stage front or dance the day away on the grass, while curiously sipping their way through the exquisite wine and craft beer selection. 

Created by the team behind successful events such as A Summer’s Day Live/Disco, TOTO, Bryan Adams and Ben Harper. Neptune Entertainment are excited to be adding this fresh new food-focused festival to their event calendar. As die-hard locals, they are super passionate about all things Bay of Plenty...
