About Us

M*A*S*S*I*V*E is a voluntary collective that puts on outdoor dance parties in Canterbury, New Zealand.

M*A*S*S*I*V*E, aka The Canterbury Outdoor Music Trust

M*A*S*S*I*V*E was formed in 1996 to bring together different cultures for combined entertainment and education on youth issues. The main purpose of our organisation is to encourage youth involvement in contemporary, original music and cultural events in Christchurch.

The Canterbury Outdoor Music Trust run four annual events - Winter & Summer Soulstice, Spring & Autumn Equinox - with a focus on involving people from a range of ages and back grounds in all aspects of the events.  We seek to provide an environment that is conducive to learning and postivie experience, and aim to nuture the local electronic music scene by providing the opportunity for new comers and old heads to perform alongside each other.
