If the dark nights and chilly temperatures are killing your vibe, you'll be stoked to hear that a dazzling free light festival is due to land in Takapuna at the end of July.
Takapuna Winter Lights will be lighting up the shore over four nights this July as part of the Elemental AKL festival and this year promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Headlined by none other than one of the country’s leading light artists Angus Muir (AMD) who dazzled spectators at Splore and LUMA this year, he says “we have plans to completely transform Hurstmere Green across four days and are excited to showcase a selection of our world-leading light installations.”
While details are still filtering through—and you can be sure we'll update you right here—the fact that the festival has expanded from two nights to four means that guaranteed good times are just around the corner.
Takapuna Beach Business Association CEO Terence Harpur says, “We’re delighted to be
bringing Takapuna Winter Lights back again this year after what’s been a tumultuous time
for everybody. To be able to deliver the excitement of such a world-class live event to our
beloved community is thrilling and the support of local businesses to help us bring it to life
has been fantastic. A true community effort.”
So, plan to hit up your favourite eatery (or, try somewhere new), grab your mates, your warmest beanie and prepare to be dazzled.
