Ki­wiburn then Wake­fest in Man­gakino

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Man­gakino is set to host two quite dif­fer­ent fes­ti­vals this sum­mer.

Ki­wiburn 2011 is to be held from Jan­uary 26 to 29. New Zealand’s take on the an­nual Burn­ing Man Fes­ti­val held ev­ery sum­mer in the United States, the event has no set pro­gramme. Rather all fes­ti­val go­ers are ex­pected to par­tic­i­pate and con­trib­ute in some way to the event’s artis­tic ex­pres­sion.

The theme for the fes­ti­val this year is Twisted Re­al­ity.

In Fe­bru­ary Man­gakino will play home to the sec­ond Wake­fest event. En­ti­tled WAKEdUP the fes­ti­val will be held from Fe­bru­ary 18 to 20. Along­side the wake­board­ing com­pe­ti­tions will be skate­board­ing, freestyle BMX, mo­tocross and per­for­mances from artists in­clud­ing State of Mind, Bul­let­proof and TREi.
