- R&A has undergone some major improvements since its debut in 2011 in terms of layout, activities and operations. Specialised first aid assistance from local company Pro Med from Temuka is one such upgrade, along with another local company, Our Daily Waste, who specialise in recycling and waste management – making sure R&A is ahead of the game in terms of taking care of the environment. While free parking is provided at R&A, it is also easy to bus there from Methven, the closest town to the event, and also from Christchurch airport, provided by Methven Travel.
- Free camping
- A big drawcard for R&A, and this year the campsite will include a food hall to hang out in, with 12 different food vendors offering a range of different options, from fast food to healthy vege cuisine. Campers will have loads of activities to enjoy as well; from volleyball, touch and cricket, to R&A’s most exciting development yet… A massive waterslide to cool off in!
- Atmospheric work
- R&A’s media partners are getting involved onsite and creating some of the atmosphere away from the stages. Spotify is hosting a Chill Out tent where people can take a break from the crowds and still listen to great music. While The Edge will be there with an amazing Pamper Room so festival-goers can look spectacular for the party. Glow in the dark nails anyone?!
