When you enter the gates this year, you enter a different Dimension. Our main stage will be a lovingly crafted structure containing the immense joy and passion that we bring to our events. We offer you this year a selection of artists from around the globe at the peak of their professions, wowing you as we all come together on the path. The main stage will share the earth with the trees and the river, allowing you to shade yourself during the day or cool off and recharge in one of the many swimming holes. This year we will be bringing the most stunning visual experiences to grace an outdoor event in New Zealand, utilising both contemporary and traditional art forms. The Main Stage is set to run for a total of 65 uninterrupted hours of musical bliss, kicking off at 4pm on the 31st. We will each night take you on a psychedelic journey from progressive to full on, and then back to chill. Make sure you join the beautiful souls enhancing Dimension's loving psychedelic vibes this year in the Main Zone. Anything is possible given the right atmosphere. We will keep you on your toes throughout the party with surprises lined up to keep you guessing so as to make the experience of Dimension second to none.
The best festivals are the ones where you can cool off when its gets hot, and the Dimension NYE site both has trees all through, and also has the stunning river running with swimming holes all along it. This is a key part of the 3 day festival experience, and we believe that swimming absolutely resets, recharges and revives you.
Dimension is only 3 hours north of Auckland, in an idyllic space next to a fresh clean swimming river. The reason its a bit further is simply because this allows us to run our Double Opus soundsystem at full tilt without worrying about neighbours. This make it well worth the drive, and to be at the ONLY new years event with WATER on site, which makes it the one to go to!
See our site pics here and we will release full location and transport details closer to the time:
Projection mapping is a tool for the new age artist. it surpasses the limitation of canvas , wood and other base materials.
It is the begining of thoughts taking shape with no limitation to the creator.
Size doesn't matter , shapes do not matter all we needs is a structure and let the magic begin.
My inspiration comes from crystals and geometric meshes. I look at the organic world like a complex geometric equation where the answer to all questions is in front of you. A professor once told me that even though the world is round but any and every part of it can be represented in triangles. From that day i have seen triangles in every creation of nature and this geometric fantacy has helped me to create a blend between futuristic forms and shapes and our mother nature.
I believe this is a time where the future is closer than its ever been and as concious beings we need to be on this path to discover the next phenomenon.
Enter The Dimension of light, art and awareness and let me create the future for you.

To deliver a musical experience second to none we see sound quality as a critical component, as this is what creates the vibe of the event. We have invested in what is fundamentally the best audio chain on the planet. The Opus Audio Soundsystem is a fully analogue, completely natural audio system that provides the cleanest sound due to its fundamental design approach that is not found in any other system. The 15Kw of Opus it something that has to be heard to be believed, and Dimension will have Opus powering both Main and Forest Stages
