The festival was originated by the local charity Make A Difference PMQ (M.A.D.), whose mission is to support marginalised and disadvantaged people within the Port Macquarie-Hastings community.

“Homelessness issues are not always visible in our community but there are hundreds of people living on the streets in our region alone,” said M.A.D. director and Ride The Wave Event co-ordinator Erin Denham. She continued, “Ride the Soundwave will help us create awareness and raise funds to support them. 100% of our entry fees go directly to the MAD charity.”

Tickets for Ride the Soundwave 2023 go on sale Thursday, 15th December. Get them here.
