Splore has been engaging and inspiring its audience with ground breaking music, art and performance since 1998. People often describe Splore as a life changing experience.

Splore's entertainment includes art, performance and music. Every nook and cranny is filled with colourful details, whether it’s an artwork appearing as you round a corner or chancing upon an out and about performance of the fruitiest nature.

The festival is in the most sublime festival location in the world, an Auckland regional park right on the beach on the Firth of Thames. People can listen and watch their favourite band or DJ while dancing in the warm ocean. The beach is fringed by ancient Pohutukawa, draping their limbs into the ocean and people can swim all day under the hot February sunshine.

Splore creates a temporary community for three days where people live alongside each other either by free camping, pre-booked camping, campervans, glamping (luxurious camping). Camping is located on the fields above the festival site and it’s a short walk down a steep goat track or via a road.

Freedom of expression sets Splore apart. Embracing your alter ego or getting together with a bunch of friends to dress-up in costume makes Splore a cool experience. This individual creativity provides another platform for the audience to be fully immersed, inspired and to express their originality. The theme for Splore 15 is 'Home' - more about that for inspiration on the website.

Splore has fantastic food options and a colourful market. There are five bars which serve up a vast array of drinks. There’s the Halletau Bar overlooking the main stage, Jagermeister DJ stage and bar, Old Mout Love Shack DJ and bar area, Yealands Living Lounge, performance zone and bar and Red Bull bar within the Red Bull Art of Camping area.

The Red Bull Art of Camping area is the Splore theme camping zone where designs are submitted for interactive creative camp sites. The top ten designs win early entry to Splore where Red Bull provide labour and materials to help build their camps. Red Bull also supply exclusive facilities such as quality flushing toilets and hot showers. The Red Bull art of camping provides yet more entertainment for the Splore audience as they make their way around the theme camps checking out the various unique set ups and activities.

All the bar areas are programmed with music and performance including live bands, DJs, theatre, spoken word, comedy, circus, cabaret. Workshops are a feature of Splore with anything from yoga to drumming. There's just so much happening and something for everyone.

Children play an important role at Splore. Kids under 12 are free and teenagers pay a reduced ticket price. The Charlie’s Rumpus Room entertains the little kids as a fully programmed zone for the weekend.

Splore has set the bar with its sustainability policy that diverted 73% of waste from landfill and reduced cars onsite by 25% from the previous event. The festival has been making year on year improvements towards a the goal of a zero waste festival. Audience participation is central to running a sustainable event and Splore has enrolled the audience to contribute to the Splore goal by taking home everything they bring on site. Splore is the first festival in New Zealand to win an international 'A Greener Festival Award' for Splore 14.

The festival takes place over three days with gates opening at 8am on Friday. An official powhiri takes place approximately 4pm on Friday at the main stage. The main stage closes at 5pm on Sunday.
