The countdown for summer is on, and now there's even more to look forward to.

Raglan-based music festival Soundsplash is returning in 2017 with the likes of Six60, Maala and Diaz Grimm ready to wow the crowds. The three-day festival will boast 40 artists across three stages in January, keeping the summer vibes going long after New Year's.

With a mix of local and international acts, Soundsplash is an all-ages event, which showcases acts across many genres, from hip-hop, drum 'n' bass, electro-pop and EDM to reggae.

The first line-up includes: Six60, Little Bushman, State of Mind, Three Houses Down, Ed Solo, Pacific Heights, Maala, Drax Project, Diaz Grimm, Mike Love, My Baby, YT, Ocean Alley, Yoko-Zuna & Third3ye, Dubsonic, and Jamin-I.

The festival aims to capture the best of what a New Zealand summer has to offer, pitching the festival along the coastline of the Wainui Reserve.

In addition to the music stages there will be bars, food stalls and camping sites, as well as a kids zone for parents who need a bit of a break.

The festival runs from January 20-22, with earlybird tickets on sale now.
