Parihaka Pa, South Taranaki

The Parihaka International Peace Festival is Aotearoa’s only community-controlled weekend festival, administered by the The Parihaka Management Trust, a charity organisation whose kaupapa includes “activities for the benefit of the community in the area of education, health, the arts and entertainment . . . through the promotion of artistic expression, artistic activities and language exchange.”

The festival celebrates cultural diversity and Peace through Music, Performance, Film, Poetry, Speakers’ Forums, Workshops, Healing Forums, Arts, Crafts and Food at an outdoors, rural family environment.

The Main Stage line up includes Dave Dobbyn, Che Fu, Emma Paki, Kora, Little Bushman, Unity Pacific, Opensouls, Cornerstone Roots, katchafire, Ladi6, FLOWZ, Billy TK Jr, Basscamp, House Of Shem, David Grace & Injustice, Paul Ubana Jones. Sam Benge, Batucada Sound Machine, Midnights, Native Sons, Ngamanu Tiori, Spartacus R, Wellington Batucada, Big Belly Women, Ahurangi, Toni Huata, Hanah Howse, Ecophonik, Mihirangi, Saritah, K'oile, Harriet & the Matches, Soul Speed, Mana3, the Kingites, MNSFX, Rhythm Plant, Amira Mudfaery, Romney Getty.

The Second Stage will feature Taranaki performers, and there are 20 electronic DJ/VJ bands at the Dance Zone, both local and international, including Antix, the Nomad and Pitch Black.

Confirmed speakers include Hone Harawira, Moana Jackson and Hazel Riseborough, and films to be screened include Michael Franti’s I Know I’m Not Alone, Dean Hapeta’s “rapumentary” Ngatahi - Know The Links and Kathleen Gallagher’s Tau Te Mauri (Breath Of Peace), winner of the 2004 Sonya Davies Peace Award. Top NZ director Gaylene Preston will be in attendance to introduce a couple of her films.

Much more than a music festival, this is a weekend promoting peace, keeping to the kaupapa established by Parihaka prophets Te Whiti O Rongomai and Tohu Kakahi in the 1860s. Both Te Whiti and Tohu died in 1907 so the festival will commemorate the 100th anniversary of their deaths.

Parihaka Pa is situated on Parihaka Rd, 45kms south-west of New Plymouth, off the Surf Highway (SH45) between Pungarehu and Rahotu. Look out for the flags!

Tickets - $135, available from the festival website (www.parihaka.com) and at Ticketek. Gate Sales - $150. Children under 15 and adults over 60 - $10 (please present ID at the gate).
