Don’t miss this newly created pop-up music series called He Wai, remembering the iconic Waihorotiu stream flowing beneath the pavements. For four special evenings, June 15,16, 20 & 21, contemporary Māori artists will thrill midtown audiences with live music and waiata on Queen Street & Elliott Street.

Allana Goldsmith (Ngāti Porou, Ngāi Tai) and others are expected to pause the city centre’s hustle and bustle for a moment of celebration as part of Matariki ki te Manawa. 

Where: Queen Street (between Victoria St and the Civic Theatre), Auckland Central.
