Eat, Drink and Dance Under the Stars At Flamingo Pier 2017

The event touted as the perfect summer party will return to Waiheke Island in February.

Flamingo Pier first popped up in New Zealand on the auspicious date of February 14, 2015. The flagship event was founded on a floating pontoon in East London's Hackney Wick by expats Tom Seaton and Luke Walker, assembling three of life's pleasures under the stars: eating, drinking and dancing. It's since been called things like "London's best party" and "top of the popups" by the UK press.

The third outing of Flamingo Pier will once again be held within the natural amphitheatre of Waiheke's Rangihoua Estate. As well as open-air disco jams, tree-hung hammocks, cocktails served from a boat, and a dance floor under the forest canopy, the event will include nourishment from a selection of food vendors. While details are still light on the ground, previous eateries have included slow-cookers Miss Moonshine's, boutique burger makers Bearded Clam and Te Matuku Oyster Bar.

The musical lineup is set to be announced on Wednesday 7 December.

Flamingo Pier III will take place on Saturday 4 February, 2017. More info and tickets from flamingopier.net
