Tuesday 16 February
Auckland Live Fringe Town cancelled due to Covid-19 Alert Level 3.
Auckland Live regrets to announce that due to Monday’s change in Covid-19 Alert Levels in Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau, the Fringe Town programme has been cancelled.
The Auckland Fringe Festival 2021 will continue to go ahead once alert levels allow. Auckland Live Fringe Town was scheduled to run from 15 – 21 February at the Auckland Town Hall as part of the festival.
Yesterday, ticketholders and those registered for Fringe Town performances SUSO Alumni, Barrier Ninja, Sorry For Your Loss, and Ceilidh at Auckland Town Hall were advised those events had been cancelled.
Since we cannot anticipate changes to alert levels beyond Wednesday of this week, as a precaution the remaining planned events, all of which were expected to attract large gatherings of artists and audiences, have been cancelled and ticketholders and those registered to attend have been notified.
These events are:
APO Open Concert Rehearsal, Thursday 18 February
Frnjam: 48 hour game-jam, Friday 19 February
KITA, Imugi 이무기 & Zuke, Friday 19 February
Battlezone, Friday 19 February
Maimoa, Saturday 20 February
Everybody Eats at Fringe Town, Sunday 21 February
The 95bFM Kids' show Live from Aotea Square, Sunday 21 February
Auckland Live and Auckland Conventions Venues & Events director, Robbie Macrae, says the organisation is working with all the Fringe Town artists to reschedule performances and events for later in the year. He says it’s important to note that these cancellations do not affect the overall Auckland Fringe Festival which is scheduled to run until Saturday 6 March.
“If alert levels permit, we encourage you to book tickets and support the hundreds of artists who will hopefully be able to proceed with their shows in the weeks to come,” he says.
Refunds to individual ticket holders booked to attend a Fringe Town performance will be processed automatically. Please allow 10 – 14 working days. Ticketholders of tickets purchased from a Ticketmaster outlet should contact the Ticketmaster Customer Service Team here and follow the instructions.
