Senior secondary students from Niue, Cook Islands and Hawaii are expected to spice up this year's ASB Polyfest with guest appearances on several stages.
Now in its 42nd year, the popular annual festival draws more than 9,000 students from 64 schools in Auckland competing on six stages.
Festival director Seiuli Terri Leo Mauu says its a strong indication of how the iconic schools festival has grown in stature over the last 42 years.
"Niue High School coming all the way from Niue, Tereora College coming from the Cook Islands and then we've got some groups coming from Hawai'i and L.A," she says. "It's nice, it means people see the value of Polyfest."
ASB Polyfest will be held at the Manukau Velodrome from March 14 to 17.
