Respect ⬙ Release ⬙ Regenerate
Three days of continuous music, art, nature and human connection.
2023 marks the 10th anniversary of Taniwha’s Den.
Leave the world behind and step into a natural wonderland, decorated with purposefully-planted native trees, a very special awa, and the infectious buzz of happy people. Camp on-site for the long weekend and immerse yourself in the spirit of The Den.
Two Nights of Music, Lights, Magic.
Where a natural wonder is transformed into an immersive artscape
Music, art, and light combine to arouse the senses and celebrate the surroundings.
A special kind of magic emerges when Taniwha’s Den is ablaze with the energy of its people. Those who’ve walked this whenua before know its majesty, and if you’ve not yet had the chance, prepare to feel transformed.
