So, what's this all about?

This is a fundraising gig to save one of New Zealand's most celebrated sustainable living communities, home to many and a community for hundreds of people across the world, travellers and families alike.

Last month raging, out-of-control bushfires in the Coromandel Peninsula devastated this beautiful and iconic community, one of New Zealand's longest-standing eco-communities and destroyed several building structures, a workshop and acres of pristine bush, orchards and gardens.

Wilderlanders are a determined bunch and aim to re-build what was lost, including their precious workshop space filled with tools and their honey house, but they will need our help.

Wilderlanders have been growing organic veggies and fruit since the 60's, nourishing the many who have lived and visited over the last fifty years. This 60 hectares of beautiful land is home to scrubland, gardens, orchards, beehives, tipis, houses and, most importantly, people.

So, it is our great pleasure to announce our upcoming Wilderland fundraiser gig, with brilliant live acts, led by Auckland drumming and dance extravaganza Tamani, who will get your booty shaking and your ears quaking. Tamani have been blowing socks off across New Zealand this festival season and they will be supported by funk-punk-folk band Stop the System (originally formed in Wilderland and famed for their quirky costumes and on-set banter and live poetry).

Solo performer Aiden Kelly will be performing a sweet-voiced set to warm up our ears, with other acts in the pipeline. There's going to be a sweet raffle (of course) with things that you actually want to win; there's going to be delicious kai for sale, and chai for drinkies, made by our very own Chai Wallah, Josh Mainwaring.
