Splore-City Moves To New Venue With New Timetable
Splore-city is changing location and hours: this summer's most lavish celebration of the combined arts is migrating from Aotea Square to Auckland Town Hall next door, with a programme scheduled to start at 7.30pm on both days.
A principal reason for the shift has been ongoing feedback from the audience that an 11pm curfew is too restrictive for a Splore event. So with partying into the wee hours in mind, Splore-city will now be accommodating a fruity, freaky, fun-loving audience well into the night.
Those who wish to submerge themselves in a night or two of untamed indulgence will be treated to a transformed Town Hall. A hundred years old this year, Aucklands grand dame of entertainment is to be spectacularly Splorified for the occasion, creating a new space where performance, music and art collide in a breathtaking kaleidoscope of sight and sound.
Garnish yourself in your fruitiest, most outrageous outfit, and dress for the night of your dreams this year is all about colour.
Splore events appeal to those who know how to create and participate in wild escapades, and truly know or want to know the meaning of an outrageous party.
Leave everyday life behind for the weekend. Play up, get down, and let loose in a two day party dedicated to artful provocation, and non-conformist frivolity. Local acts Coast and Fly My Pretties will now have the honour of opening the festival.
