September 21st 2015
Wanderlust, the ever expanding global yoga lifestyle brandis announcing Wanderlust will be returning to the Wairakei Thermal Valley, Great Lake Taupo NZ for Waitangi Weekend!
As an experience that gets into your mind, body and soul, the festivals will bring together a remarkable group of yoga and meditation instructors, speakers, artists and chefs for a transformational retreat in awe-inspiring natural resorts. Also an exciting lineup of musical performers will be showcased at each festival; the first headliner for Wanderlust Great Lake Taupo has just been announced as the great Thievery Corporation, the first time the legendary full live band will play in New Zealand.
Thievery Corporation, who recently headlined Wanderlust Squaw Valley CA, has become known for the carnival-esque atmosphere of their live shows, during which they bring out a 15-member live band of musicians and vocalists. Described as an extravagant celebration of music, the eclectic assembly of performers is acclaimed for their genre bending fusion of bossa nova, reggae, trip hop, dub, acid jazz and electronica. Festival Director Jonnie Halstead says “Thievery Corporation personifies what Wanderlust is all about – the perfect fusion of conscious, cutting-edge music with a nod to eastern culture, and a great time!”
Yoga headliner Shiva Rea has also been announced. One of the worlds top yoga teachers, this will be her first visit to New Zealand. Shiva Rea is a global yoga teacher, energy activist, and movement alchemist who has collaborated with musicians, DJ’s, and movers and shakers from around the world for positive change. As the founder of Prana Vinyasa and Samdura Global School for Living Yoga, she offers online classes, workshops, retreats and trainings for living flow.
