The Waterfront is where Auckland comes out to play, and it couldn’t be a more fitting playground for an adventurous line-up of eclectic music and free activities. With a grand dress-circle view of the Harbour Bridge’s sparkling lighting, and at the heart of the transformed Wynyard Quarter, in its short life Silo Park has become a real destination for entertainment, gastronomy and atmosphere. As a focal point we think it perfectly captures the celebratory spirit of the Festival and Auckland’s enthusiasm for the summertime and the outdoors

Award-winning designer Angus Muir has created an immersive environment within the Silo Park area, responding to the idea of play. You’ll find a host of exciting local and international acts who will take the stage at the new Music Arena. There will also be room for quite possibly the coolest thing in the world: and enormous House of Mirrors that will amaze everyone from wide-eyed youngsters to thrill seekers and explorers, to selfie and photo fanatics.

Front and centre of the city’s party strip, this is a resplendent new space for the music, for the fun, for the people.
