Splore is a unique music and arts festival held in Tāpapakanga Regional Park, a stunning beachside location 70 km southeast of Auckland city.
The Splore kaupapa is about bringing people together to celebrate the arts and culture in a community of like-minded individuals who share our values. Splore promotes aroha, kindness and respect for the environment.
Revellers of all ages will enjoy our eclectic lineup of music, dynamic visual arts and diverse performances, dedicated Kids Zone and Wellness Zone. Top that off with a range of workshops, forums, sustainability initiatives and New Zealand’s greatest dress up party - there’s something for everyone at Splore.
We invite you to embrace the theme and join our mindful tribe of party animals.
FESTIVAL TICKETS & FREE TENT CAMPING:
Every Splore Festival Ticket grants you access to all Splore stages, workshops, interactive experiences and so much more. It also includes free tent camping in the Family or General Camping Areas.

You can start your Splore camping experience a day early. The Thursday camping upgrade lets you into the Splore campground from 2pm on Thursday. Sea View Village will be open where you will find a bar with DJ’s, food & craft vendors and Wendy’s Wellness Zone.
There is NO beach access until Friday morning, Thursday entry is NOT available to boaties arriving by sea.
All vehicles coming to Splore must pre-purchase a Parking Pass for on-site car parking. Camping in vehicles is not allowed in the general car park, so if you intend to camp in your vehicle, you must purchase a Camper Vehicle site instead.
The Splore Parking Pass is designed to minimise our impact on the environment. By limiting the number of vehicles on-site, we reduce our biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions while making the whole festival experience less congested. The Parking Pass rewards carpooling and ridesharing. Vehicles with 3 or more occupants will receive a $50 refund on their parking pass.
Before you book a Parking Pass, please consider if there’s another transport option available to you: you could ride the Splore Express Bus, or share a ride in someone else’s vehicle.
