The River Range Music Festival is concept and idea sprung to life in conversation between two local Cromwell musicians. They spoke of an afternoon in the sun, surrounded by mountains, having a few beers, connecting and listening to other local artists & bands that they had never been able to hear.

The Idea quickly gained traction to become an event which the Cromwell community could be proud of. An event that everyone could afford and one music lovers could enjoy the best of local music and talent in their own backyard. The key was to have involvement from local businesses, friends, family and community groups who were prepared to donate their product, time and support our vision- So we then could take our vision to Cromwell.  

We felt that as a Music Festival we really could reach out to all music lovers, of all ages to cater for all tastes and bring the local & Central Otago music scene to life again!

The River Range Music Fest has continued to grow and evolve into something Cromwell and our region can be proud of.
