Auckland Blues Festival

Introducing

AUCKLAND BLUES FESTIVAL 2022

POSTPONED – WEATHER

Dear Auckland Blues Festival supporters, AUCKLAND BLUES FESTIVAL POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER CONCERNS

NEW DATE TO BE ADVISED

We regret to inform you that after last year’s covid situation, we have now been dealt a weather bomb for this year’s planned event which will almost certainly result in heavy rains with possible heavy wind gusts. Multiple weather forecasters along with local knowledge of the site’s unique (and normally amazing) weather patterns all agree that the show date will not be suitable to run the event. The potential for high winds coming from an easterly direction is of particular concern and may put our stretch tent shelters outside of their safety parameters. Clearly this is not something we can risk.

TICKETS HOLDERS WILL BE CONTACTED DIRECTLY
– All tickets will be valid for the new date

– All glamping packages and non entry ad ons will be refunded

NEW DATE Feb/March 2023. To be advised. Please see our terms and conditions for further details https://www.bluesfestival.co.nz/terms-and-conditions/

SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFO OR QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE
We know many of you will be disappointed as we are. We were all getting really excited. The show production was looking stunning, all of the artists were primed and all of their special custom guitars, Rhodes pianos, drum kits & fancy music equipment were tuned, the site was prepped and the team, pumped. The decision to postpone the show was not made lightly. We considered moving to an indoor venue but believe that would have been short-changing our supporters and undermining the beautiful show we have planned for you.

We will be in touch as soon as we can with new show details. In the meantime, thank you all again for your support and thank you for your patience. We look forward to hosting you all at what we know will be a magical event early in the new year.
Have a beautiful day

The team at Auckland Blues Festival

Auckland Blues Festival

After nearly two decades of planning and waiting for the right moment, we just couldn’t wait any more. We’re super excited to announce the launch of our passion project, a beautiful family focussed boutique and bespoke blues festival designed for discerning tastes.

Auckland Blues Festival will be a one day/night affair held at the gorgeous Aum New Year’s Festival site just an hour north of central Auckland near Helensville.

We will have two stages covering all things blues music. This is a pure live music, dancing, and art affair and this inaugural show will feature some of the finest blues sounds from throughout New Zealand, accompanied by some stunning international guests.

Ladies, Gentlemen, Non Binary and everyone in between, welcome.

We will also be showing off some of the incredible festival art we have accumulated for Aum Festival and there will be live performance artists on site.

The festival will be presented on stages complete with shade canopies and rain cover should we need it, surrounded in lush rolling hills and Kānuka trees.

There will be delicious food trucks, boutique licensed cocktail bars, buses to and from site as well as glamping, camping and other luxury on-site accommodation options.

People have been calling for a quality blues event for many years. Well here it is. Designed with love and care.

Don’t expect this to be a ‘booze’ fest. This is not how we do festivals. Expect warm, welcoming vibes, friendly smiling faces, world class production including one of the best sound systems in the world, and attention to detail on one of the most beautiful sites you can imagine. Expect a day in paradise and to be treated like family.

The Auckland Blues Festival is a 100% New Zealand owned and operated project.

Where is the festival being held? 
At our pristine Aum Festival site in South Head, Auckland (just past Parakai). It is approximately 50 minutes from central Auckland and regarded as one of the most beautiful festival sites in the country.

Drive Safe. If you are driving, make sure you have a designated sober driver. Free refreshments available for designated drivers. Don’t drink and drive!

Camping, Glamping and Transport options

Stay the night after the show and unwind under the stars in our little place in paradise. Bar and entertainment for campers will continue for 1.5 hours after the main stage close. Breakfast and coffee will be availabe in the morning.
