We are monitoring advice from the Ministry of Health and will provide further updates and advice around rescheduling of Auckland Live’s Summer in the Square in due course.


Get ready for Auckland Pride Festival’s annual epic takeover of Aotea Square.

See some of Aotearoa’s finest queer artists in a weekend packed full of celebratory pride. On Friday night, we warm up with a Pride-curated programme, leading us into the Pride party takeover on Saturday night.

Pride party performances will sprawl across two stages, with food trucks a-plenty and the pop-up garden bar to keep you watered throughout the day. When the sun goes down, grab a drink and party the night away with an amazing line-up of DJs, drag performances and musicians.

This event is part of the 2022 Auckland Pride Festival. See the full programme at
