First Line-Up Revealed For Splore 2017

First Line-Up Revealed For Splore 2017

Thursday 22nd September, 2016 7:30AM

The first line-up has been revealed for next year's Splore festival. The theme for Splore 2017 is "Strangely Familiar at the Splore Family Reunion", as festival director John Minty explained in a press release:

“Splore’s creative element comes to life with the interpretation of the annual theme with the festival-goers participating and becoming part of the visual aesthetic. Saturday night at Splore is New Zealand’s biggest costume party where dressing up allows people to take on their alter ego and become uninhibited, making for much conviviality whilst watching world class entertainment.”

'Family Reunion' because Splore kindred spirits have a ‘commonessence’ flowing through their diverse identities in a multi-coloured sea of fabulous costumes. The family that frolics together, stays together!"

Here's the line-up so far....
