Splore has been happening every two years, and apparently the most common request they get after each festival is "Why don't you make it a yearly event?" So, they have.
From Splore's PR: "Splore will be returning for 2015. Scheduled for February 20-22, this will be the first time the full three day festival has ventured to an annual frequency. Tickets will go on sale through iticket.co.nz on 2 June 2014.
Festival director, John Minty, says “Our research shows us that 83% of our audience want to come every year and from an operational point of view, it is much easier to keep the festival ticking over annually – it’s a win all around for everyone”.
The festival content will continue its long tradition of remaining fresh, inspirational and eclectic over five stages with an array of genres including performance, art and music. This year Splore expanded the zone in the camping area that is situated within the Red Bull Art of Camping zone, which was a huge success.
Splore’s founder and creative director Amanda Wright has decided to pass the baton of festival director to John Minty and will step into a peripheral advisory role for 2015. “I’ve founded Splore and have been integrally involved since its inception in 1998. Its time for me to pursue new opportunities so John is taking the reins as festival director from now on”.
With constant comments on social media about this year’s Splore being the best Splore event yet, festival director John Minty is confident of another successful event for 2015."
