Government Covid-19 Policy

New Zealand has recently moved into a new Covid-19 Protection Framework that will greatly reduce the potential cancellation of large-scale events. We have no choice but to adopt these legally mandated controls. 

Under the new "Traffic Light" system, events of any size can legally operate provided:

  1. The region in which the event takes place is under the "Orange" or "Green" control (under the "Red" control only events of less than 100 people can operate).
  2. All attendees older than 12years 3months (participants, crew, sponsors, supporters, spectators etc) have received a full Covid-19 Vaccination and can show their valid Vaccine Pass (events are still open to attendees under 12years 3months, but they are not yet required to be vaccinated)... More Here.
