The first Festival of Live Art Auckland (F.O.L.A - AKL), is a festival that creates space for the bravest, weirdest, and joyfully subversive artists Tamaki Makaurau has to boast about.
F.O.L.A. - (AKL) is your gateway drug to the underground world of rule breakers and risk takers. Expect nothing less than the feeling of partying on K' Rd at dawn, or catching the sunset from Mangere Bridge at dusk. F.O.L.A. - (AKL) is jam packed with performances that will leave you feeling twice as alive as you do now.
