TUKI Festival - Glendhu Bay, Wanaka

What a blast! 
Thanks TUKI Festival for having us along to film + interview an outstanding line-up. From treasured personal favourites like The Phoenix Foundation + UMO to new encounters such as Aaradhna, Marlon Williams, Lips, Maala and more, TUKI festival delivered great set after great set.  We filmed a portion of each set and then interviewed the artists about their upcoming year in music, their experience of TUKI + then threw in a few curveball queries...  

The TUKI crew were welcoming + so hospitable.  Much aroha to the organisers, Lake Wanaka SouNZ.  Profits made from the festival go directly back into future events and the Wanaka community.  Since the first festival put together by the non-profit group in 1998, more than $118,000 has been put back into supporting music, youth, and the environment within the region.

It was also our son Theo's first festival - and he not only survived it like a champ, he seemed to really get into it!  And of course, last but not least, thanks to Aerial Vision for coming aboard to film and capture some drone footage! It's always great to work alongside this duo.

UMO - Unknown Mortal Orchestra were phenomenal.

Theo's first festival! That's right, our little man was there for the festivities and was a champion.
