There are no door charges and the event runs in all weathers. The cosy bars and restaurants in historic Buckingham Street make a perfect intimate venue where locals can support home grown entertainers in a town known for its warm hospitality.
During the festival known as Arrow Sounds, music rolls around different Arrowtown bars and restaurants for 12 hours on Saturday 20 June from 12 noon, featuring local musos. Patrons can sample a range of top musos by travelling from venue to venue or simply stop and enjoy a favourite performer in one of the charming venues.
Save taking your car by using one of the two shuttle and bus options for you to get to the festival and back.
Pure Tours provides a midnight shuttle for only $10 giving festival goers an easy option home to Queenstown, Lake Hayes Estate, Shotover Country and Arthurs Point. Book by phoning 0800 393 754.
