Be part of our band of 3,000! Immediately following Culture Beats, join Demetrius Savai’inaea and his crew as they lead us on a multi-cultural and resonant rhythmic journey of epic proportions.

Bring any percussion instrument of choice – poi, rhythm sticks, drum, triangle, cowbell, pot, plastic bucket or just your bare ol’ hands to name a few – and be part of Auckland’s biggest ever mass drumline, beating right in the heart of the city. Slap, tap, hit and clap your way to the rhythm of the music specially created for this occasion – by YOU!

We recommend coming earlier for Culture Beats at 2.00pm. See renowned local artists Tamashii Taiko Drummers and Ānuanua Cook Island Drum Group, with special international appearances from Ju Percussion Group (Taiwan) and Afrique en Cirque (African drumming from Canada) playing their different drums and percussion instruments.
