As part of celebrations to commemorate 150 years of Kiingitanga, Waikato-Tainui will host a 12-hour music concert aimed at youth called "TRIBAL PRIDE MUSIC CONCERT 2009" to be held on Saturday 24 January 2009, Auckland Anniversary Weekend, at Hopuhopu Sports Complex, Hopuhopu, Ngaaruawaahia.

Celebrations Project Manager Rahui Papa says the concert will bring some of Aotearoa's top headline acts to the Waikato such as: Kora, Scribe, Katchafire, Nesian Mystik, House Of Shem, Ardijah, Unity Pacific, Whirimako Black just to name a few.

A number of DJs and smaller bands are also confirmed, and with Te Matatini competition only weeks away from the concert in early February, we are delighted to have some of our national kapa haka groups who are keen to perform. There'll be lots of entertainment, dancing, comedy, prizes, food stalls and much more.

Mr Papa said, "and although we are hoping to target youth, the concert is open to everyone young and old, Maaori and non-Maaori. We want to take this time to celebrate, educate, and raise public awareness. This is a celebration of TRIBAL PRIDE, and you're invited."

The concert is not-for-profit "which means ticket prices can be kept to a minimum to encourage surrounding communities and youth in particular, to come along and enjoy bands and artists that they might not otherwise be able to see locally." He says it's also an opportunity for musicians both local and national, to showcase their music talents.

Gates open at 9.00am and the venue is preparing to cater for around 10,000 people. The stage is expected to go non-stop over 12 hours. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketek, or call 0800 TAINUI.

Mr Papa says high profile celebrities from within the tribe will be invited to engage with youth throughout the day.

"Many organisations have come on board to help with the success of the event and we're also inviting celebrities to interact with the youth by participating in some competitions and giveaways, and by delivering key messages in a wonderful, safe and friendly, drug, alcohol and gang free environment."
