Archived: Sounds of Summer

presented by Auckland Live

Summer’s well and truly arrived and we’ve got another round of FREE live acts, quenching drinks and plenty of sunshine to keep you on your summertime buzz!

Music man-about-town Matthew Crawley and folk music connoisseur Finn McLennan-Elliott have spoiled us with a fresh new line-up of DJ’s, folk artists and musicians, who will be providing sweet tunes every Thursday to Sunday throughout the sunny month of January.

Plus, don’t miss spectacular performances from none other than New Zealand Opera and the Royal New Zealand Navy Band, set to grace the Great Hall stage in the Auckland Town Hall for two very special performances!

So grab a mate and your sunhat and head on down for your summer of free music at Aotea Square.
