Kiwiburn then Wakefest in Mangakino
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.
