The biennial Splore event returns to the sublime Tapapakanga Regional Park to mark its 10th anniversary on the Auckland region’s events calendar. Splore 2014 is sure to be dazzling, sophisticated and not to be missed. Once again it will provide a richly diverse festival to entertain and delight its audience.

Splore is renowned for its extensive, wide-ranging programme of contemporary cultural offerings and for its audience; it’s an experience like no other.

For three days and two nights international and local music will take centre stage. Previous international guest artists have called Tapapakanga Regional Park the best festival site in the world due to its stunning beach backdrop. There is nowhere else in New Zealand where you can watch a band while dancing in the warm ocean!

There’s more to Splore than the music. It also showcases performance from cabaret to comedy, circus and theatre. The festival encompasses an extensive visual arts programme with participatory and site specific artworks situated throughout the site. The festival site is literally transformed into a magical wonderland where audience interaction is encouraged.

Inspiration for dressing up during the weekend is drawn from the festival theme which is love. Splore is a celebration of individuality, of living the life you love and loving the life you live. So don’t hide your love away, come ready to delve deep in the deities, channel your inner cupid or vamp up Venus and immerse yourself for three days in Tapapakanga’s wondrous realm d’amour.
