New Zealand’s Dimension Festival Returns In 2024 With State Of Mind, Alienatic And More

Music, arts, workshops, camping, and wellness unfold at Donnellys Crossing in New Zealand, courtesy of the impending Dimension Festival 2024! Scheduled from February 2–5, this multi-day psychedelic experience snags over 120 acts, including electronic artists, live performers, art installations, laser shows, and digital exhibitions. Tickets to Dimension Festival 2024 are powered by The Ticket Fairy.

Aotearoa’s leading music and arts festival Dimension makes a glorious return for its 2024 spectacle, sitting at its new gorgeous riverside location on New Waimatenui East Road, Nukutawhit. This year, the festival puffs out four stages (Astral Arena, Drop Zone, Cosmic Cove, Zen Den) flared across the venue with uninterrupted music lasting 72 hours. Varying from psytrance, progressive, breaks, DnB, jungle, dubstep, house, techno, downtempo, and dance, this musical buffet is set to serve all attendees!

A peep into the music card and you’ll find it stacked with a myriad of incredible artists, including headliners Dutch psytrance act Alenatic (Jake van Aarst and Dennis Stellovic), Kiwi’s State of Mind (Patrick Hawkins and Stuart Maxwell), Australian music producer Chromatone (Lawrence Hoffman), DnB staple Paige Julia, and UK’s Ben Soundscape & Collette Warren, to name a few. Kiwi hotshot Grouch is also on the absolutely stacked card, alongside the likes of Chromatone, Simiantics, Renegade DJ, Junky Monkey, Fowl Owl, Truth, Ashez, Ozzy, Junky Monkey, Mish & Green, Jakaan, Bella, BROTHERHOODJZ and more! Find the entire line-up on the Dimension Festival website.

Artwork and performing art displays are slated to dominate the arena with innovative art installations, fire and flow performances, magic shows, free-roaming and surprise acts, live painting, circus acts, and productions with sound and lighting. Interactive and educative workshops, a marketplace with handicrafts, festival merchandise, garments, and food and beverage vendors are also on offer!

Dimension Festival is also a Leave No Trace affair, with attendees requested to carry along only what they will take back with them. Would-be goers are also encouraged to bring their own drinking cups, bottles, and straws for the bar; water stations are available across the venue. For any makeup and fashion enthusiasts attending, only bio glitter will be permitted at the festival.

We had an exchange with DJ Akasha, the project of Akashdeep Sandhu, who graces the festival once again and is slated to storm the Astral Arena set up at Dimension. “The Dimension crew is the reason how I discovered psytrance in the glorious outdoors, they used to put up parties called Madagascar and I was amazed at the massive effort put in to have a proper outdoor party. Ever since then, I have been a magnet to their parties,” says the psychedelic trance artist.

Giving us a tease about her set at the festival, she states, “As for my set this year in 2024, my style will be on the darker realms of high energy psychedelica ranging from 150-154bpm. I am known for playing nighttime full-on psytrance and gradually over time I have moved into the faster pace of psytrance which I’m happy to share with our North Islanders.”

Akasha also expressed a few kind words toward the organizers of the festival as she concluded our conversation. She remarked, “I highly recommend Dimension Festival for many reasons – the class and organization of their parties are top-notch, the biggest arts and performers lineup we’ve ever had, new decor and canopy, freshwater river, the Opus sound system, the music by internationals, and our locals are outstanding and the hard work that goes in for most us individuals that hold two jobs to maintain this otherworldly experience.”

Arlen Jade aka Grommie, marked on the scene for her brand of dub and drum & bass, also chimed in with us about Dimension, saying, “It really is an honor to be a part of Dimension and help on the team, as it truly is a life-changing festival. This will be my fourth time playing, and I feel so lucky to be able to express myself freely and creatively, along with being able to work with the team to make things happen. I will be diving into a real bass-heavy style as per usual but really changing up the dynamic of how I flow, so everyone is in for a treat!”

We also had up-and-coming Paihia-based psy DJ Zagada share her excitement to perform at Dimension 2024. “I am extremely excited to be playing for the first time, Dimension has been my favorite and it will be my sixth time there. Frothing about being back at the old location to be part of such an epic line-up. I promised I’d only play bangers in my application and that’s still the plan.”
