Auckland Live is disappointed to inform you that due to Monday’s change in Covid-19 Alert Levels in Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau, the full Fringe Town programme has been cancelled.

Auckland Live Fringe Town was scheduled to run from 15 – 21 February at the Auckland Town Hall as part of the Auckland Fringe Festival 2021. That festival is still going ahead and is scheduled to run until Saturday 6 March.

Since we cannot anticipate changes to alert levels beyond Wednesday as a precaution the Fringe Town events scheduled from Thursday to Sunday,  all of which were expected to attract large crowds of artists and audiences, have been cancelled.

Refunds to individual ticket holders booked to attend any of these events will be processed automatically and you do not need to contact us. 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.

We thank your understanding  at this time, and suggest that if alert levels permit, you book tickets and support the hundreds of artists who will hopefully be able to proceed with their shows in the weeks to come.

Ka kite,
Auckland Live
