Auckland Live celebrates NZ Music Month

1 May - 31 May 2022

Multiple Venues

Join us to celebrate NZ Music Month! 

Immerse yourself in a free, pumping live performance by psychedelic pop-infused trio, KITA. Experience Aotearoa New Zealand's finest up-and-coming talent at Indie Rock in the Garden, on for one night only in the Wintergarden, The Civic. Plus, explore a range of live music happening in our venues including gigs, classical performances and more.  

Looking for something more chilled? Come along on a free Historical Music Venues Tour with Gareth Shute, a local music legend and writer. Along Karangahape Road and down to Aotea Square, there are many music venues, past and present, with incredible stories to discover. Join a group tour or take your time with a self-led exploration via the free Auckland Stories app on Apple or Google Play.  

Be sure to pay a visit to Aotea Square, which will be filled with music-themed games and activations during the month such as musical hopscotch and interactive quizzes. Take in photography highlights of NZ gigs on the Auckland Live Digital Stage with FromThePit 2022 Music Photography Exhibition. Explore music stories and activities with giant stickers scattered around the Square. At the end of the month, experience Sounds of Aoteroa featuring live DJs and a spectacular projection on the Auckland Town Hall clock tower by Auckland Council in collaboration with Creature Post. Plus, stop by The Terrace Café to grab a special Music Month food and beverage offering!

There’s something for everyone, so make sure you make the most of New Zealand Music Month this month, especially in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, proud to be a UNESCO City of Music.
