The 2021 Festival Party brings together some of Aotearoa’s finest queer acts into one evening of celebratory splendour!

As the Auckland Pride March comes to an end, join us in Aotea Square from 6pm for a gag-worthy lineup. The night’s performances will sprawl across two stages, with food trucks a-plenty and the Box Bars – we’ve got everything you need to celebrate the final weekend of Pride.

Recline in the shade, grab some kai, enjoy some great music and relax after the March. Then grab a drink, let the sun go down, and party the night away at our main stage with an unbelievable lineup of DJs, Drag performances and musicians.

This year’s headliners are queer icons, the phenomenal DJ HalfQueen and rap legend Randa. Other acts in the line up include the talents of BrownBoy Magik and DJ Nubiian Phenomenon. As well as these incredible djs we have some of the best drag acts in town such as MurderHaus and Medulla in our ‘Drag Hour of Power’ hosted by Kita and Anita.

Celebrate the final weekend of Pride and uniqueness of our vibrant communities at this free, all-ages, and accessible event.

With more acts for the Festival Party still to be announced in the lead up to Pride Month, stay tuned to discover the amazing artistry that will be on display across two stages in Aotea Square.

The 2021 Party is presented by Auckland Pride, with support from our Party Partners: Skyn, Spark NZ, and Auckland Live.
