The Hokonui Moonshiners' Festival will stay in the Gore heritage precinct this year after a proposed new venue was double booked.

The festival was to have moved to the Southern Field Days site because of its larger size, but the site has been double-booked for the Young Farmer of the Year Otago-Southland regional final.

Festival committee spokesman Jim Geddes said the decision was made to keep the festival in the heritage precinct this year rather than share the field-days site.

"We were not satisfied that we could take the festival to the next level and fulfil our expectations, as well as those of festival-goers, beside another distinctly different event," he said.

The festival would still be held on March 23.

Tickets cost $45 if bought online through iticket.co.nz.
