Splore Festival 2017
DATE: 17 – 19 February, 2017
LOCATION: Tapapakanga Park, Auckland, New Zealand
Simply put, Splore is a boutique music and arts festival like no other.
Splore Festival situated in a beguiling bay on the shores of Tapapakanga Park is a boutique music and arts festival like no other. An entertainment extravaganza and New Zealand’s greatest dress up party. We invite you to embrace the theme and join this mindful tribe of party animals!
The three-day Splore festival introduces fresh energy and a new dimension to the ancient homeland of the tangata whenua Ngāti Whanaunga and Ngāti Paoa.
The pristine environment is a platform to educate and inspire our Splore community through the festival kaupapa (ethos, values and beliefs) of contributing to the well-being of our planet by creating transformational experiences and throwing a bloody good party.
Splore is equal parts liberation and libation; idealism and interactivity; creative showcase and community springboard.
Splore offers a multitude of opportunities for getting down, local and international acts rocking the main stage massive, an arts trail to delight your senses, a wide range of the finest food vendors to nourish your body and a brand-spanking-new wellness area to revive and nurture the body and soul. All the while across the beach, burlesque nymphs dangle from trapeze in a marquee full of costumed, midnight revellers.
The history of the Splore visual arts program is rich with works which integrate into the festival in very interesting ways. Artworks embrace the Splore culture, theme and environment and add to it by engaging and connecting the audience. A fantastic feast for our eyes and souls.
Tapapakanga Park is steeped in significant archaeological sites that are important records of history of the tangata whenua Ngati Whanaunga and Ngati Paoa and are protected by law. Please respect these areas they are clearly marked and are off limits to the Splore audience.
Featuring an array of extraordinary talents, Splore is guaranteed to surprise and delight with shows, workshops, happenings, flash mobs and disruptions, to view, experience and participate.
Our partners help us create a great festival, thanks to them we can pull Splore off every year. Their support means we can focus on the finest entertainment and audience orientated fun so that you have the best summer time fun.
