* The number of audiences and participation at Kapa Haka events is lower than targeted because more audiences preferred to access Kapa Haka events by watching increased coverage on television and online.

** Te Matatini runs a biennial National Festival, and achieves higher ‘television audiences for Kapa Haka events’ in the years when a National Festival is held. The last one was held in March 2015. The number of ‘television audiences for Kapa Haka events’ is higher than targeted due to increased televised coverage of the regional competitions.
