There will be moving Māori and Pacific Art artwork projected on a huge water screen in Whairepo Lagoon. The display showcases more than 15 artists, lasting from 8.30-10pm on Saturday and Sunday.

If past years are anything to go by, this is not one to be missed. Not to mention the fact it’s completely free! Absolutely no excuses to miss it.

The show will include visual artists, poets, musicians and choreographers all coming together to create some stunning visual multimedia on our relationships with water and the ocean.

Then, viewers will be blessed with I am Hine, I am Moana, by choreographer Terri Ripeka Crawford. She is a strong supporter for environmental and indigenous rights, and this work explores the omnipotence of Hine.
