Boardies and Bikinis is Tractor FM’s annual music festival held at the Ruapuke Motor Camp in Raglan.
2009 was our first year and has been growing every year since, with 2012 lining up to be our most ambitious yet Ruapuke’s natural beauty compliments the quality of the home grown and international band and DJ flavours that are interwoven with TractorFM’s policy of putting on parties that are not to be missed.
From Dub Reggae to Tech House to Drum and Bass to Surf Rock and Hip Hop, Boardies and Bikini’s has something for everyone and we party till dawn. Ruapuke has a unique location on the base of Mt Karioi. The Campground is located at the beach set in tranquil native bush and streams, with amazing sunsets and a stunning mountain backdrop.
The TractorFM team transforms this to a night time wonderland of music, lighting and effects. Boardies and Bikinis is a safe family festival and children under 12 are free. The Festival is a BYO (food and drinks) with the use of full camping facilities.
