We are honoured to be partnering with Auckland Council and the whenua of Ātiu Creek. Join us to celebrate the 2020 Equinox and the season of Poutūterangi.


What’s so special about equinox?

Earth Beat is held every year around the time of the autumn equinox in Aotearoa, New Zealand—the season of Poutūterangi. In 2020, the equinox falls on the 2Oth of March. It is a time of giving thanks for the things we have, whether it is an abundance of crops or other blessings. It’s a time of celebrating in gratitude the last of the warm summer days, in preparation for the winter months.


In our work and in our living, we must recognize that difference is a reason for celebration and growth, rather than a reason for destruction.

~ Audre Lord


ātiu Creek, Kaipara, Tāmaki Makaurau

Regeneration / Sustainability

Respect and gratitude to Papatūānuku is at the forefront of our celebration. In alignment with that, EB2019 will be a zero waste event. There is recycling on-site, although we encourage you to take what you bring with you, or bring reusable items that will not need disposing.
