Splore Festival’s First Live-Stream

Splore will be live-streaming selected acts on Saturday, 25, and Sunday, 26 February 2023. Splore Festival invites viewers to participate from the comfort of their lounge and join in on some Splore-style entertainment.

Splore is Aotearoa’s best boutique festival, but it often sells out before customers can snap up a ticket. From stages right on the beach, the programme is overflowing with international and homegrown music, all set amongst the wilderness and beauty of Tāpapakanga Regional Park.

There’s something for everyone at Splore, including the Rumpus Room zone programmed just for the little ones, a park full of visual art, a listening lounge to debate the hot topics of our time, and new to Splore 2023 is a mana whenua zone where visitors can gain insights into Te Ao Māori from Tāpapakanga’s iwi, Ngāti Paoa and Ngāti Whanaunga.

To get a slice of this festival action, tune into the free multi-camera live stream on Splore Festival’s homepage. Their viewers can watch six hours of highly produced entertainment, including Saturday night’s rollicking ‘Absolutely!’ cabaret show featuring 17 performance acts and hosted by Tom Sainsbury and Lizzie Tollemache.

Containing an array of spectacular local talent, Splore offers free, live entertainment for family and friends.
