Melbourne's Festival for New Zealand Music, Culture, Arts, Food and Drink.

We are finally returning for 2021 with a very special edition celebrating the coldest season of the year. 
Takurua // Winter salutes the dark beauty of winter, with a respectful nod to Matariki and the winter solstice; bringing together Melbourne's New Zealand community (and their friends!) for a very special event! 
Located in the iconic Meat Market heritage venue, this event offers something for everyone with two unique components. 

TAKURUA // WINTER: Daytime
Featuring a colourful Kiwi market village and projection visuals from renowned artist Jacob Tolo, Takurua/Winter's daytime programming is free and features a range of Kapa-Haka and Pasifika performances, cuisine and feeds from Melbourne-based performers and artisans.

TAKURUA // WINTER: After Dark 
Our After Dark programming is headlined by Ladi6 (NZ), New Zealand’s undisputed Queen of Hiphop/Soul and R&B. 
Supported by Shottaz and Amin Payne. 
After Dark is a strictly 18+, ticketed event.

 

 

Supported by the City of Melbourne and the Victorian Government.
