Sunny forecast for Festival

Organisers are delighted sunny skies are predicted for this weekend's Hokonui Moonshiners' Festival.

Headlining this year's event is Aussie rocker Diesel, with Kiwi acts The Warratahs, the Nukes and Bulletproof Convertible, making up a whopping 6-hours of music.

Festival convener Jim Geddes said it was going to be a huge day and with the fine weather forecast, he encouraged anyone who hasn't already to secure tickets before the day.

"We've got a stellar line-up of musicians and this is going to be what everyone is talking about next week."

As well as the Festival-famous hokonui Moonshine whiskey, there will be a range of beverages available plus a large variety of food stalls this year.

Food stalls include some moonshine-inspired dishes, Bluff oysters, plus some international flavours, including Thai, Filipino and Nepalese.

Tickets are still available for the Festival but are selling fast.

Don't miss out!
