Ngapuhi may be going through turbulent waters, but the tribe aims to make a splash at its biannual festival in January.
A giant waterslide will be on site to celebrate the festival’s theme of ‘ko au te wai, ko te wai ko au - I am the water and the water is me.’
Ngapuhi Runanga chief executive Tony Dowling expects more than 30,000 people at Whangarei’s Toll Stadium on January 27, making it Northland’s largest free music, arts, cultural and community event.
Headliners so far include award winning RnB and soul singer Aaradhna, roots reggae band Paua and the Modern Maori Quartet.
The Toi Ngapuhi arts festival with more than 50 Ngapuhi and Maori artists will be held in the Toll Stadium lounge from January 25 to 28.
