NOTE: AUM is heading towards a zero waste event. Bring your own rubbish bags to remove your rubbish when you leave site (food waste/compost available on site). Also bring smaller bags to contain your waste when around the festival site. Be prepared to take care of your rubbish at all times. AUM is a very clean site and we do not tolerate littering at all. If you think you will leave your rubbish lying around, or your tent or otherwise when you leave, do not attend this festival. We love our land, our country and the people in it. Be the change you want to see.

Grouch LIVE + Grouch in Dub Ft Dub Princess LIVE + Pitch Black Live + incredible line up of DJs and unsurpassed sound & production.

This autumn we debut our newest concept event - a foray into the realm of sexy, world class DUB sounds, all with a psychedelic twist!: welcome to The Grand Dubbers Picnic.

Over one night and two days we invite you to join us on a new musical journey covering the sounds of dub led by some of the biggest names in the game.

Who better to launch this event but two of the most revered international touring dub acts: Aotearoa’s own PITCH BLACK (live with full visuals) and GROUCH in DUB (full live band) featuring UK’s DUB PRINCESS.

Together with a cast of local DJ and performing talents they’ll send the fattest rhythm & bass through the mighty Adamson sound system to an intimate gathering of beautiful humans on our gorgeous AUM New Years Festival site on 21st and 22nd May.

Topping this off, GROUCH will also be putting the hammer down in the way only he does to bring an end to the psychedelic journey on Sunday.

28 hour full power show with the finest DUB, BASS, PROG, PSYTRANCE, ZENONESQUE, TECHNO, & DnB across two days and one night. 11am Sat 21 May to 3pm Sun 22 May 2022.

This is no ordinary doof! This will be done the AUM way.
