The Montana Flat


Burning Horse is stoked to be back in 2020!

Join us in February for an epic fun, transformational, multidisciplinary music and arts festival. Held on a family run sheep farm “The Montana Flat” you’ll have a fine opportunity to connect with nature and soak in the scenes of Southland rural landscape. You’ll find a diverse range of artists, electronic and acoustic, throwing down some bangin’ eclectic tunes over two feature stages. Live spray-painting, light shows, screen-printing and fire-spinning will add to the artistic experience. Farm to plate grazing, backyard games, circus arts, a giant river float party, a disc golf tournament. In 2020 we're planning an area to take a step back from the madness, and to be fair, explore a different kind of madness! We’ll be rocking yoga, breath work, dance and creative movement classes throughout the weekend. As well as sweat lodge ceremonies, and a full on, full power, tribal zone. You’re gonna find something you’re looking for here (or even better - something you had no idea you were looking for)! Check out burninghorse.co.nz for more info on what Burning Horse is all about. We can’t wait to see you here at The Montana Flat. ROAR Express yourself!
