Te Matatini: What you need to know

Gates at Rotorua International Stadium open 7am daily. Public entry is through gates two and three.

Kapa haka performances will take place on the main stage in front of the grandstand. Karakia will be held at 8.15am each day, with the first performance at 8.45am.

No smoking, alcohol or drugs are allowed. Cameras, chilly buns, cans, glass bottles and other glass items are also banned, as are gang patches.

Small quantities of unopened/sealed non alcoholic drinks and non-commercial food like sandwiches and fruit can be taken into the venue. Drinks need to be in plastic containers. Food will be available and water bottles can be refilled at free stations around the venue.

Wristbands must be collected by the ticket holder only and can be collected from the Rotorua Convention Centre today and tomorrow as well as Rotorua International Stadium tomorrow.

Tickets are available from Ticketmaster or from the gate on event day if there are tickets left. Children under 4-years-old are free in the general admission section only.

For missing children or lost and found items go to the information booth under the scoreboard.

Those who can't make it along can listen to live broadcasts of performances on Te Arawa FM or watch the action on Maori Television (the official broadcaster).
