About Kickdown Festival 2022

Kickdown Festival is the newest Motorcycle Festival in New Zealand and largest in the North Island. Based at Joe’s Farm, just 10 minutes north of the popular surfside town of Whangamata, the Festival combines all the elements of the ultimate motorcycling experience – 1 of the best riding routes in the Southern Hemisphere, music on steroids, Stampede, bike show and trade displays.

The main attractions at the Festival are the “Ride the Loop” around the world famous Coromandel Peninsula coastal roads, $1 Million Dollar Prize draw, Motorcycle Stampede, Downtown Bike Show and Major Concert featuring the best rock bands in New Zealand.

Entrants have the option of camping at Joe’s Farm for the entire event where the night time entertainment is based, or finding their own accommodation nearby.

Kickdown is breaking new ground with entrants in with the chance to win $1 million using the latest timing technology. There hasn’t been anything like this done anywhere before – it’s a world first at Kickdown Festival.
