WE INVITE YOU TO PARTICIPATE
We'd love to hear from you
The venue features an indoor area as well as an open-air marketplace. Apply early to secure your preferred location for the 2023 festival.
We are committed to being an uplifting and safe haven for all and, in doing so, refrain from including any content and/or presenters/artists that mention COVID19 conspiracy theories and any linked political views or misinformation.
We seek a range of high-calibre live music acts, performers and entertainers throughout the weekend. If you perform indigenous, tribal beats, world music, folk, conscious & ecstatic dance music, uplifting electronic or alt-country, we’d love to hear from you. All original work, please. We’re also keen to hear from circus performers, aerial artists and comedy acts.
Food & beverage
We invite vendors who offer vegetarian and ideally organic whole foods, yummy treats, and healthy beverages, juices, smoothies, chai, kombucha etc. We'd love to cater for those who want breakfast, lunch, and dinner – and everything in between!
We are a Zero Waste event, working with Waste No More Whakatū and their wash station - so all packaging, plates, cups, and cutlery need to be “wash and return” or, if they’re disposable, must be compostable.
Are you an inspirational speaker, facilitator, or presenter? Do you have expertise in permaculture, organic food production, foraging, nutrition, cooking, food security, energy healing, sustainable business development, renewable energy, meditation, chanting, yoga, dance, sound healing, or art therapy? Then we want to hear from you!
Workshop/seminar sessions are for 2 hours and run throughout the weekend in 6 different venues.
We would love to hear from you if you are interested in gifting your time and skills. Volunteering is a great way to join the Evolve team, gain event experience, share your passion and meet wonderful new people. We ask for four hours for a day ticket , eight hours for a weekend ticket and 12 hours for a camping ticket. The roles are varied, from site art, event set up and pack down to cleaning! We really value any help. If you have an inspiring idea you'd like to see at the Festival too, get in touch!
