Up to 20,000 concert goers will gather today in Hawkes Bay for the Mission Concert.

Artists headlining the show include Bee Gee Barry Gibb and Carole King, as well as Father Chris Skinner and the Wellington Ukulele Orchestra.

Peter Holley at the Mission Estate Winery isn't concerned ticket numbers are down on last year.

"There's a sizeable, substantial crowd and I guess there's just going to be a bit more elbow room this year so a little bit more space for some comfort.''
