NZ Festival Season



Summer 2019



Yasssss! As January hits, the heat waves warm up, along with our incredible festival season here in NZ, and for those wishing to travel to Australia and beyond.

Here at Tosca & Salome, our team are all adventurous with different interests and musical loves - from old to young - here are our picks for the season!


Being the ‘Mumma Bear’ in the Tosca Family, I am feeling right at home in the wineries of the Hawkes Bay while cruising into the Festival Season.

We are kicking off the festival season with what I like to call ‘a rave for us oldies!’ Fat Boy Slim at Church Road - where we found 40 something plus enjoying a wine or three, a dancing into the earlier hours of the evening (not the morning!) In and out by midnight - easy!

Next up we are re-living our 80’s youth heading to Phil Collins at Mission Estate - a winery which is favourite of mine singing along to Rod Steward after more than a few bottles. The Hawkes Bay heat is absolutely relentless, my pics of the festivals here is to wear my SPELL OASIS mini or Maxi. Easy to wear from beach, to lunch to Vineyard throughout the night.

There are a myriad of events held in local vineyards over the NZ Summer - an endless list of local talent and beyond from the South Island to the top of the North Island. Another favourite spot of ours is up North of Auckland in Matakana.



The rest of our tribe hit LANEWAYS over Auckland Anniversary, and pics of the team were as follows:

Alannah and Charlotte were matching - rocking their Spell Jungle Blouse and One Teaspoon denim shorts or matching Jungle Shorts.

Kourtney is a dream in her favourite Darling Dress - easy to wear and teaming perfectly with boots (you can wear this out on dates with heels or wedges also!)

Grace is hitting the party in her Spell Oasis Tunic Dress. At present, the Spell Wildthing Tunic is in store - double this as a shirt tied at the front, belt it for festivals or thrown on over swim at the beach.

Check out some of our team photo’s to get some inspiration for your next festival event you have on the calendar this year.

Have fun with your dressing but don’t forget the fundamentals of staying cool, having something to cover your skin up with if you’re out late or in the beating sun!




More to come in terms of festivals which means more opportunities to have fun with your dressing!


Tosca & Salome favourite - this 3 day event just out of Auckland is a great excuse to dress up, or mix and match your outfits anyway you like. We have attended this event in many ways than one! Our Bus had a stall here for years, we camped, glamped, camper vanned. A lovely festival to take your kids to - just remember to be prepared!


The Mother of All festivals here in NZ - this 3 day event held in New Plymouth hosts a myriad of international artists and is completely aimed at being family friendly with a variety of ways to enjoy the festival. You won’t find any DNB head youngsters here - but a more educated crowd.
