The Big Korero Music Festival Targets The Hurt And Hurting In New Zealand

Radio13

Let’s korero Aotearoa - we have a problem. A problem that we cannot fix without unity, conversation and action.

We have one of the highest suicide rates in the developed world, and let’s face reality, it isn’t getting better.

IT NEEDS TO GET BETTER!

In association with Downfall Productions, Josh Pinho and his team are putting together an inaugural music festival called The Big Korero.

A culmination of musicians, artists, speakers and other creatives who have had enough of our country being defined by how much we hurt, will come together to have the tough conversations in the ways we know how best to express them.

Taking place at Zeal in Hamilton on Saturday, April 27th, The Big Korero will see thirteen talented musical acts come together across two stages for a day of all ages, Aroha and music. The day will also feature speakers discussing their experiences with mental health, and other confronting social issues in our country today. A marketplace will also thrive during the day, with many talented creatives contributing their part to the conversation.
