Set in a beguiling bay on the shores of Tāpapakanga Regional Park is a boutique music & arts festival like no other. A three–day immersive entertainment extravaganza and the greatest dress up party in Aotearoa (NZ). Each February Splore invites you to embrace the theme and join our mindful tribe of party animals! The Splore kaupapa (ethos) is about treading as lightly as possible on Papatūānaku (Mother Earth). But with ten thousand friends and family partying at the beach for three days, you are going to encounter challenges. As the festival producer, alongside a dedicated sustainability manager and a passionate team of tree hugging event pros, it is my job to minimise Splore’s environmental footprint. From carbon audits to un-trending trashy plastic body adornments, we’re not afraid to take responsibility and work toward improving each year while engaging our community to learn, make better choices and party smarter.
