Splore is a summer outdoor festival devoted to art, culture and community. With the 10th anniversary due to be staged on the 14-16 February you can expect Splore 2014 to be an absolute cracker.
With the main stage located right on the beach, festival attendees can dance or float to an eclectic line up of world class local and international music. There is a dynamic visual arts programme of interactive and engaging projects, a diverse range of theatre, cabaret and performance shows, a dedicated kids zone (Rumpus Room) and a range of workshops and activities.
The Splore kaupapa (philosophy and ethos) is about celebrating arts and culture with a community of like minded people who love and respect our environment. Everyone who attends and contributes to Splore are part of the overall experience and are responsible for creating the magic that often happens within the mantle of the land - Tapapakanga.
Tapapakanga Regional Park is a precious and beautiful coastal park that offers safe swimming on a pohutukawa fringed coast line, with a fresh water lagoon and stunning vistas over to the Coromandel peninsula . We are privileged to be able to come and live, play, love and party together on this sacred land that has significant historical stories with the tangata whenua Ngati Whanaunga, Ngati Paoa, the Ashby family and Auckland Council.
The Splore management team is committed to developing and improving our sustainability initiatives for Splore 2014. Our aim is to reduce the festival footprint and facilitate proactive features that will make Splore 2014 a leader in this area. For this to happen we all need to work together as a community and make this a reality.
Splore is a camping festival with a range of camping styles to suit most people including tenting, glamping (glamorous camping), reserved camping and campervan sites, pre-pitched tents and holiday homes in the area to hire. All camping options will be available to purchase later in the year. For more information please check out www.splore.net.

We all hate those queues when we are amping to get tent pitched and party started so we think we have come up with a cunning solution. We must reduce the number of vehicles coming on site by a minimum of 20%. The upside to less cars, is less congestion and there will be smaller queues for processing at the gate. If you are bringing a vehicle, to gain entry you will need to pre-purchase a Parking Pass HERE.
