Our partners help us create a great festival, thanks to them we can pull Splore off every year. Their support means we can focus on the finest entertainment and audience orientated fun so that you have the best summer time fun.
Here’s a snapshot of our partners and what they will be doing and why they are involved with us:
"From where you’d rather be."
There’s nothing better than kicking back in the warm summer grass, sun fading, laid-back beats and an ice-cold beverage in hand. Returning for the second year in a row, the Corona Sunset Bar which resembles the wooden beach side bars of Mexico. It will be set up in the same primo spot as last year so bring your buddies and enjoy the mint view of the main stage with a chilled cup of Corona.
Keep an eye out for the Sustainable Coastlines crew too. Corona are stoked to have a partner as amped about the coastlines as they are. Together, they’ll be sharing ways you can get involved in enjoying and looking after our idyllic beaches this summer and for years to come.
"For setlists, playlists, and A-lists,
For all the world’s artists.
From the unknown to the greatest.
Because music is here to be played with."
New Zealand’s very own Serato is a world leader in audio software for professional DJs and musicians across the globe. Artists such as Fatboy Slim, DJ Snake, Major Lazer, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Mix Master Mike (Beastie Boys) and many of the DJs playing at Splore love and perform with our software. Splore is all about music, having fun and partying which is the very essence of Serato "We bring the math, you bring the party".
Join our party at the Old Mout beach bar where Serato will own the stage and bring you a banging sound system for this year. See our tech in action, or chill out up in the bush disco listening to Serato iOS app ‘Pyro’ mixing the tunes.
Smirnoff awakens the potential in every situation and sees Splore as a place where people have amazing beach-side experiences, in the heat of the summer sun where they too can release their very own potential. Smirnoff's new Smirnoff Pure Product with just vodka and natural ingredients is the perfect fit for Splore and their values, it is the ultimate drink for the light refreshing taste of Summer, and Splore provides the setting and experience for just that.
Find your way to the Smirnoff Beach Bar, sit on a beach towel, picnic table or deck chair and drink Smirnoff Pure's in the sun, whilst enjoying the Splore festivities. As day turns to evening, Smirnoff lights up the night at the DJ Bar with delicious cocktails, bringing the atmosphere and party to all!
Here at Phoenix we like to collaborate with people that match our passion and we’re now in our 4th year of partnership with Splore as we are aligned on many of our values.
Organic and sustainability are at the heart of the Phoenix brand as we source the finest organic ingredients free from synthetic chemicals and processed with nil or minimal use of synthetic additives. In addition we use sustainable energy to produce our drinks and our power comes from a waterfall in the king country. We even use rain water off of our roof to cool our drinks after production.
Splore is committed to minimising impact on the environment and here at Phoenix Organics we think that is pretty cool... This year at Splore we’ll be back with our non-alcoholic Phoenix lounge set up down by the beach, so come and grab a drink and relax on our loungers. We’ll also be bringing our new Phoenix Caravan and we will have our sampling team on site to deliver you some of our new drinks. Our new premium organic mixers will be used throughout the Splore bars to keep your spirits happy, and deliver you a premium organic mixer to pair with your favourite cocktail.
Ceres Organics is excited to be partnering with the Splore festival this year to bring festival goers the new health and wellbeing area called Ceres Organics Wellness Central. It provides the opportunity to experience a wide variety of holistic health options in a unique and dynamic healing space. In addition, the education space offers demonstrations, activities and workshops aimed at increasing knowledge about keeping healthy, including nutrition, herbal medicine, yoga, meditation, laughter yoga and energy medicine.
Imagine having multiple health practitioners all in one spot? Imagine no more. Choose a new experience with our practitioners who will be operating in Ceres Organics Wellness Central throughout the Splore festival. They can smooth out those aching dance muscles, relax the stresses away, and enable you to deal with a headache from having a great time - without medication.
Wellness Central is a great chillation spot where you consciously create better health and well being. Come and join Ceres Organics for breakfast after early yoga or before pampering, and uplift your life force through practitioner sessions and/or inspiring educational workshops. A perfect choice to start your year!
Gull’s focus on providing a more sustainable fuel solution to Kiwi motorists, aligns well with Splore’s commitment to being as eco-friendly as possible and minimising waste. With this in mind, we supplied a special blend of B20 Diesel Max, an ultra-low sulphur biodiesel blend made from used cooking oil, to power generators used at the three day music festival. We’re bringing back our generator powered phone charging cow as well as some goodie bags with sustainable goodies.

Who doesn't love an ice cold cider over summer by the beach? Old Mout is a classic Kiwi brand loved by all, and the Splore festival is the perfect summer environment for us to bring our brand to life… summer sun, great music, and relaxation near the beach makes for the ideal time to enjoy a cold cider!
The Produce Company
The Produce Company team have long been supporters of Splore.
Partying in the sunshine with friends old and new, you’ll surely need some fuel. We’ll be there providing fresh, local wholefoods so the chefs on site can work their magic for you to enjoy. This year we’re looking forward to bringing our green trucks back to the festival, supplying the best local ingredients on offer for The Breakfast Club banquet brunch. We will also be delivering daily fresh supplies to all the food vendors.
After all that dancing, swimming and soaking up the festivities you might want to kick back in the sun and have some fresh fruit, so look out for our friendly crew handing it out on Sunday!

The Glass Packaging Forum
Splore is proud to announce it will be working with The Glass Packaging Forum (part of The Packaging Forum), and waste management partners Clean Event, to create a case study for events to get their glass recycled separated by colour.
Glass needs to be separated into each colour in order to be correctly recycled into new bottles and jars.
Using recycled glass (also known as cullet) reduces energy consumption by 20% (recycled glass can be melted at a lower temperature compared to using virgin materials materials which need higher temperatures), and can reduce greenhouses gases by up to as much as 50% depending on the amount of cullet.
Glass is extremely effective for recycling once colour separated, and up to 95% recycled glass can be used to make a glass product with no difference in quality. And, unlike plastic which has to be “downcycled” into a less useful product, glass can be recycled over and over and over again. Forever.
