Tribal Pride Music Concert 2009
If you’re in New Zealand and you’re looking for a great way to celebrate culture and music, make sure you get yourself down to the Tribal Pride Music Concert 2009. The concert is a not-for-profit event that is hosted by Waikato-Tainui and Event Management Group (EMG) and it will be taking place on Saturday, January 24, 2009.
This awesome event is designed to encourage younger people to celebrate their unique tribal identities through music. The Tribal Pride Music Concert is designed not only for musicians, but for music and culture lovers from around the globe. Even non-maori musicians can use the event to showcase their talents as they play side-by-side with popular local music legends. Moreover, it appeals to all age groups from youths age five and up and there is a wide range of music to cater to all interests. Tribal Pride Music Concert 2009 offers visitors the chance to immerse themselves in this strong and unique music and culture festival for a full twelve hours. Music lovers considering attending the event do well to realize that the Tribal Pride Music Concert is NOT just for Maoris – it is for anyone and everyone who loves music and is interested in exploring the local culture.
Tribal Pride Music Concert 2009 will see some of New Zealand’s top bands coming together at one fantastic location for the festival of a life-time. Musicians, groups, dancers, comedy acts, national celebrities and TV personalities will all be attending the event, developing positive messages and celebrating the fusion of culture and music. Please note that this is a gang-free, drug-free and alcohol-free event, which is one of the reasons why it is so appropriate for people of all ages. The substance-free event is no doubt a part of the positive cultural message that is being put across through the event.
Some of the key themes that will be discussed and explored at this year’s event include: “Celebrating 150 years of the King movement”, “Reinforcing Tribal Pride in rangatahi/youth” and “Promoting family health and wellbeing in opposition to violence”. All these issues are worth taking note of and hopefully the concert will have a positive off-spin in the lives of many of those that attend. The concert will take place at the Hopuhopu Sports Complex in Ngaruawahia and gates will be open from 9am. Tickets cost $50.00 for people over 17 and $30 for youths between 5 and 16 years of age. Don’t miss it!
