Mud, mud, glorious mud. There’s nothing quite like it and this year New Zealand will see its first ever festival dedicated to this smelly, delightful mess. That’s right, Mudtopia Festival is sliding to Rotorua this December 1st - 3rd.

Don’t get muddled up, because this ain’t any ordinary clean festival. Oh no, this is the time to get muddy with your buddies and make all your dirty childhood dreams come true! (HEY, GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER)

Remember as a child when you used to get told off for playing in mud? Well now it’s time for your revenge! At Mudtopia there’s only one rule—get muddy. (Even the ‘ents can’t stop you this time). Sounds like our kind of party!

For starters, there will be mud. And there will be music. All you need to do is bring your mates and your dates.

This is your chance to get stuck in mud (in a good way). The event includes a Mud Arena, Mud Games zone (mud wrestle and gumboot throwing), Mud stage and a Mud Run. For those dedicated to health and beauty, there’s a mud massage, spa treatments and group Yoga too! 

You don’t even have to pick out the perfect outfit for the ‘gram. Just turn up in whatever and you’ll get dressed there—in mud (yeah, definitely the best time to get up close and personal with your crush).

The bosses over at Mudtopia love you so much they’ll even provide waterproof bags to keep your most prized possession (your phone) safe so you can flood your friend’s feeds. No one takes mud as seriously as these guys.

It’s clear as mud where we’ll be this December. Not muddy at all.

Share with your squad so you’re ready when tickets go on sale this July.
