Splore 2010

From the collecton Music Festivals & Events

Imagine watching a great band while waves lap at your knees; wandering through the forest surrounded by continuously-changing works of art; eating mussels, sweetcorn and curry by the bucket-load then diving headfirst into a crystal lagoon and you'll have some idea of what Melody Thomas experienced at Splore 2010. The biennial festival of music, arts and culture saw 7000 festival-goers checking out half a dozen stages and zones packed to the brim with fantastic international and national acts, at the beautiful Tapapakanga Regional Park, 70km south east of Auckland. In the programme Melody talks to Jamie Lidell, Spektrum, Mystro, The Gaslamp Killer, Dub FX and the Flower Fairy.
