The Wellington Jazz Festival is ON! 18-22 November 2020

You may have noticed our cool little Capital coming back to life over the last two weeks.  As we come out of Lockdown our music festivals are also waking up. 

 The annual Wellington Jazz Festival is the highlight of Aotearoa’s mid-winter music calendar, featuring some of the finest musicians from across New Zealand and around the globe. For 2020, the Festival has reshaped its planned programme, shifted to spring and is putting all its resources into the sounds and talents of Aotearoa NZ. Jazz aficionados and intrepid newcomers can explore more than 100 gigs across the city, with five days to #lovelocal, spreading the magic of jazz throughout the capital’s streets, cafes, bars and live music venues. 

The festival features a whole range of artists including award winning performers like Kevin Field, Avantdale Bowling Club, Anita Schwabe and Rikki Gooch.  More artists and events are being announced all the time so watch this space!

This just in: Laneway 2021 Canceled

From the Laneway Festival folks:

"After much deliberation, we are very disappointed to announce that Laneway Festival Auckland will not be taking place in Summer 2021. The current circumstances surrounding border closures and the unpredictability of future Covid-19 outbreaks have created an extremely tough environment for festivals.

We take pride in delivering an absolutely premium event year after year but in these conditions we do not believe we can operate to our full capabilities. We have decided that it would be best to take a year off so that we're in a strong position to come back bigger and better than ever.

Sending our love and support to all our loyal crew and suppliers who we hope to see again, along with all the punters, in summer 2022.

Keep an eye on our socials for an update on Laneway Festival's Australian events in the coming months."
