From large-scale shows to solo acts, immersive performance to extraordinary aerials, dance, tricking, parades and participation, we need you to blow the minds of our up-for-it audience.

With hundreds of acres of Festival site and The Living Lounge, our covered 1500 capacity venue with a hi spec, full production stage, this is your performance playground! Immensely proud to see an ever-increasing line-up of stunning performers animate every nook and cranny of Tapapakanga Park, we invite you to add your colour and craziness, your insane talent and raw, genius edges to the unforgettable-experiences that our Splore audience will share with their friends for years to come. 

Are you an individual or part of a collective with brand new or existing work, ready to adapt for Splore?

Do you know of an exceptional performer who we should approach to take part? We are keen to hear about work and ideas that can be presented in a variety of locations, that look stunning on or above stage, move around our site and encourage the audience to engage and participate.

Please not that we operate under a total fire ban and can not permit any  fire based acts or open flames.



Celebrate yourself! Celebrate friendship! Celebrate love, diversity, whanau and freedom! Celebrate your body! Celebrate tēnei whenua! Celebrate kindness, mother nature & sunshine! Celebrate everyday! Celebrate Splore!

It’s Splore’s 20th birthday plus 2019 marks our tenth whakanui at Tapapakanga Regional Park. Celebrate! Splore 2019 is your invitation to join our celebration, to bring your own reasons to celebrate and together make celebration the theme for everyday.

If you're ready to embrace the theme (or not) and want to start a conversation about contributing to Splore, please complete this form.

Application for the next Splore should be lodged before end of October.

We are always happy to receive your ideas beyond this date but places may already be full for the upcoming festival so your application may be not be considered until the following year.
