‘Māoriland Presents’ is a series of unique live performances held in the Māoriland Hub, in Ōtaki. Designed with fans of Aotearoa’s best musicians in mind, each performance holds two sets exclusive to the one headlining artist. Each show is hosted by Māoriland, the organisation who produce the annual Māoriland Film Festival, who speak with the artist about their inspirations and motivations before each performance and allow a limited capacity audience to submerge into the artists’ work.
