TO THE FRONT PŌNEKE

This four-day weekend programme takes everything that’s made our week-long programmes so successful and gives us the opportunity to offer it in new locations across Aotearoa, at new times of the year, and for participants who might not be able to commit to a full week To The Front experience.

2023 sees the introduction of an exciting new electronic stream, where participants have the opportunity to gain experience with digital music production.

THE PROGRAMME

In this programme, participants aged 12 – 17 learn instruments, form bands, write original songs, and perform at a showcase, all guided by professional musicians in an inclusive environment. Alongside collaborative learning, participants will take part in workshops about DIY merch, Taonga puoro, beat making, and performance skills.
