Join us for the 43rd Music in Parks season. Twenty open-air concerts will play in our glorious parks. No bookings, no tickets, it’s FREE.

Come along with friends and whānau, sit back and enjoy. You’ll be entertained by talent ranging from music icons Jordan Luck and Midge Marsden to our newest rising stars.

Operating in a tighter budget environment, Auckland Council is delivering a smaller series of Music in Parks to the region this year, but it maintains its spot as a jewel in the crown of an Auckland summer.
