‘Maoriland Presents’ is a series of unique live performances held in the Maoriland Hub, a former department store based in Otaki. Designed with fans of Aoteroa’s best musicians in mind, each performance holds two sets exclusive to the one headlining artist. Each show is hosted by Maoriland, the organisation who produce the annual Maoriland Film Festival, who speak with the artist about their inspirations and motivations before each performance and allow a limited capacity audience to submerge into the artists work.
