Reorientation splashing on another paint party

A rejigged Illuminate Paint Party is part of a diverse reorientation line-up announced by Otago University Students' Association yesterday.

''We're working on creating another great line-up for the reorientation period that includes not just music events but food, clubs and even features 1000 special student-priced tickets for the English Premier League game,'' OUSA president Ruby Sycamore-Smith said.

A highlight would be the popular Illuminate Paint Party, which was back with a new layout.

It would now be alcohol-free, and safety matting would be put down on Forsyth Barr Stadium's eastern slab where the event is being held.

''The event is hugely popular and we believe that it will once again be a massive event with students always ready for a great night out in the paint.''

This comes after last year's paint party - which was attended by 5000 people - was marred by intoxication and people slipping over on the paint.

Other acts included international drum and bass producers The Prototypes and the international food festival.

''With over 15 different stalls catering food from across the globe, the Dunedin international food festival is one of the most popular events OUSA runs.''

Tickets were available from OUSA's main office.
