Auckland Live Digital Stage, Aotea Square


Celebrate Te Marama Puoro o Aotearoa New Zealand Music Month with us this May!

Experience New Zealand’s iconic music scene from behind the lens with FromThePit, New Zealand’s longest-running music photography exhibition that celebrates the creative works of some of our best music photographers.

Marking the sixth anniversary, this year’s exhibition features the most recent work from sixty-six photographers. The photos are exclusive of local artists and venues that promote our homegrown industry. The exhibition is made up of around one hundred images carefully selected from the hundreds submitted.

FromThePit is proud to share images from recent gigs across Aotearoa. Make sure you stop by Aotea Square this month to see the large-scale screen exhibition on the Auckland Live Digital Stage.


Proudly supported by Auckland Council and the city centre targeted rate.
