Gather Round - Radar Goes to the Gathering

Television (Full Length) – 2002

In this one-off documentary Te Radar takes his roving reporter skills to Takaka, and immerses himself in the groovy world of The Gathering. The New Year's dance music festival ran from 1996 to 2002. Radar proves the master of the quote, whether chatting to 'Lords of the Ping', electronic act Pitch Black or avoiding immolation from fire poi enthusiasts ("who doesn't love a fire poi", he says grimly). Watch out for Black Seed Bret McKenzie, laidback DJ star John Digweed and the earnest 'Jesus Food' crew, whose free dosh proves a bit too popular for rival food stalls.

At this stage the noise emanating from the hardcore tent was strangely alluring; it was as illicitly enticing as that attractive third cousin at a family reunion.
– Te Radar comes around to the hardcore scene at The Gathering
