Mānawatia a Matariki! Celebrate the Māori new year at Matariki Festival 2022 with a truly unique visit to the stars.

Staying true to the kaupapa of Matariki and its yearly movement, Matariki on the Move with the aid of Stardome Observatory and Planetarium's technology, takes you on a voyage through Tāmaki Makaurau, the solar system, Māori constellations and Matariki itself.

Each deep-space exploration will be accompanied by a soundtrack performed live by world-renowned Māori musicians AJA, Riki Gooch and Mara TK.

  • Friday 1 July - AJA
  • Friday 8 July - Riki Gooch
  • Friday 15 July - Mara TK

This promises to be a special experience for festival goers, star gazers and music lovers alike.
