Bust out your bangin’ moves or wow us with your smokin’ vocals at #Tāmakibeats, our all-new talent competition for rangatahi in Auckland.
Over the first two weekends of the Festival, dance crews will go head-to-head and singers will flex their vocal prowess, each vying for a spot in the finals on 20 March.
Multi-award-winning, bilingual artist Rei (2020 Best Hip Hop Album, Waiata Māori Music Awards) and Prestige, one of the most dynamic dance crews in Aotearoa and first-ever New Zealand representatives to win the World Hip Hop Championships, will headline the finals performance on the Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre stage.
Up for grabs at the final event is… major street cred! Plus prizes which include either a studio session with leading choreographer Joshua Cesan (IDCO) for dance groups or a session in a recording studio for vocalists.
Pre-registration is essential to be part of this inaugural comp, or just come along to see a stage bursting with talent! First registered – first in! More information on the website.
