It has been two years since our last festival. Earth Beat 2019 is about new beginnings. We are honoured to be partnering with Auckland Council and the whenua of Atiu Creek. We invite you to join us as we get to know the land and explore the potential for 2020 and future years.

Through art, music, dance, and workshops, Earth Beat is about unfathomably fun experiences that help us release and reconnect to ourselves, the land and our community.

Regenerative Kaupapa

We envision a world where life is not only sustainable but regenerative; a world where we focus on potential rather than problems, where individual contributions are aligned with the greater good, and where we live in harmony with the natural rhythms of our bodies and the Earth.

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.

What’s so special about equinox?

Earth Beat is held every year around the time of the autumn equinox in Aotearoa, New Zealand. In 2019, the equinox falls on the 21st of March. The autumn equinox 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 gratitude for the last of the warm summer days, a time of transition to welcome and prepare for the winter months—sharing and redistributing abundance with those less fortunate.
