The International Arts Festival in New Zealand is the largest multidisciplinary arts festival in the Australasian-Asiatic area. Every two years, Wellington celebrates the arts with a host of activities programmed over the three weeks of the festival. Plays, dance, music, literature, film and the visual arts take over, with performances in theatres, concert halls, museums, galleries and open-air venues throughout the city. The programme comprises over 300 activities and attracts around 300,000 people.
The festival grants pride of place to international artists, and also presents up-and-coming artists from New Zealand.
