Gig Information

Splore is a New Zealand owned and operated festival located on a beautiful safe swimming beach. Described by its’ audience as their favourite summer festival, Splore brims with creative content and entertainment including music, performance, visual art, theme camps, workshops and forums.

Festival goers converge from around the globe to meet at Splore for a three-day opportunity to reunite, party and relax under the hot February sun at its sublime beach-side location. Situated 70km south east of Auckland and an easy one-hour journey, the festival presents itself as an epic adventure tucked away in its own piece of paradise.

The Splore experience is so positive, with its chilled and friendly vibe, that people have described it as a life-changing experience where they have emerged from their festival escapade full of renewed optimism and enthusiasm for life.

The festival content caters for all ages, even the kids have their own fully programmed zone. There is something for everyone including a dedicated performance area and an extensive art trail with site specific installations by some of New Zealand’s top contemporary artists.

Splore is a truly diverse music and art festival that caters to families during the day yet sparkles brightly at night as the party amps up with an eclectic music line-up. The food options are affordable and delicious with just about every cuisine imaginable on offer and the food experience always features favourably with audience feedback.

Heralded as ‘one of the best festival locations in the world’ by visiting international music acts, the site introduces its’ international visitors to a good dose of Kiwiana complete with a powhiri by local Iwi. With it’s beautiful safe swimming beach surrounded by 100-year-old pohutukawas and a fresh water lagoon to plunge in - Splore never fails to impress the first time visitor.

Splore leads the way in sustainability and has a target of 85% diversion of waste to landfill and asks the audience to actively participate in this goal. Many initiatives have been introduced over the years to minimise the festival’s foot print including encouraging car-pooling and subsidising public transport, reusable drinking vessels and a recycling system that is manned with volunteers to ensure it works. One of Splore’s greatest points of differences is the lack of rubbish and clean site. It sets the tone and a narrative for people to ‘love and respect’ the Splore place. Splore’s mantra is #leavenotrace and that’s why it’s New Zealand’s cleanest music festival.
