Located down stream from the site of the final Nambassa Festival in 1981, the Valley has a rich history of culture. There are many parallels between Sundaise and the iconic Nambassa festival. Sundaise hails back to that traditional Kiwi feel, a festival without the boundaries of commercial interest.
