It’s been hailed by many artists as the most beautiful setting they have ever played at – and after years of being a biennial affair, the environmentally conscious music and arts festival Splore is now an annual event.

Situated on the shores of Tapapakanga Regional Park an hour out of Auckland, Splore hosts a plethora of local and international artists who bring their sounds to a crowd of more than 6000.

Music 101 has been covering Splore since 2008. This year reporter Mani Dunlop took on the sought-after assignment, checking out the music, art and culture offerings, and interviewing Splore 2015 headliners including Tinashe, Deltron 3030’s Dan the Automator and The Correspondents.
