The main thing on this weekend is The Gathering, a two-day electronic music festival, the largest event in the Festival of Dance.
Held at John Grenell's farm at Whitecliffs, The Gathering begins at 3pm on Saturday, finishing the next day.
Security will be tight and alcohol will not be permitted. Food will be available from the Venus Cafe and other food sites.
The event will cost $30 and there will be no gate sales. Limited return transport is available for $12, but you will have to be quick. If you are driving, follow the West Coast highway out of Christchurch, take the first left turn after Darfield, and follow the signposts. Get tickets from Lumiere Clothing, Galaxy, and Java.
