Rhythm and Vines NZ via CampervanThere are a lot of outdoor festivals in New Zealand, especially during the warmer months. And while they don't always cater on-site for campervans, there are usually other options nearby. Case in point -- Rhythm and Vines, held on New Year's Eve in Gisborne, North Island. The event itself doesn't have a campground, but they do work with BW Campgrounds who run campsites and basically host a week-long party. While BW Campgrounds caters mostly for tents, they do have some sites for campervans -- it pays to book well in advance though.
