Summer is calling, and Auckland Council’s Music in Parks is back in 2024!

From January to March, soak up the sun with live music from some of the best talent Tāmaki Makaurau has to offer.

Enjoy blues, reggae, opera and pop — with more than 60 music artists on stage this year. Pack a picnic rug, water, sunblock and hat, and head along to Che Fu and King Kapisi (Hedlok) at Mission Bay, Sola Rosa Sound System and Captain Festus McBoyle’s Travellin’ Variety Show (for tamariki) at Milford, or Annie Crummer at Pakuranga. And because we know you love our annual Opera in the Park at St Heliers, we’ve added another Opera in the Park at Māngere Bridge’s beautiful Ambury Park.

There’s something for everyone, so start planning your summer with friends and whānau now. Don't forget, Music in Parks events are FREE to attend — no tickets required.

Follow our Facebook page to get the latest updates and ways to make the most of each event. You can download the printable programme here.
