Join the action with Splore Festival's first live stream

Thursday 16 February 2023

Splore will be live-streaming selected acts on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 February 2023.

Splore Festival invites you to participate from the comfort of your lounge room - wherever you are on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon join in for some Splore-style entertainment.

You have heard Splore is Aotearoa’s best boutique festival, but it often sells out before you 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.

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

Invite some friends, tune into, it’s free and requires no login, turn it up, and get amongst the Splore goodness.

Splore’s live stream contains an array of spectacular local talent.
