Gig Information

Kia ora,

Last evening Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield announced Auckland will move into COVID-19 Alert Level 3 from midday Wednesday August 12th to midnight Friday August 14th.

In respect of the government’s request, we have postponed the celebrations planned for We Love Aotearoa, Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 August, at Shed 10 and The Cloud, Queens Wharf this weekend.
This includes the following events:
We Love Aotearoa (r18) ticketed event 4:30pm-11pm, Sat 15 August (Postponed) We Love Aotearoa ticket holders - please hold on to your tickets and we will let you know a reschedule date as soon as we can.
We Love Aotearoa - Whānau Fun Day 11am-3pm, Sat 15 August (Postponed)
We Love VR - 10am-6pm Sat 15 August & 10am-4pm Sun 16 August (Postponed)
We will be monitoring the situation closely, and will look to be in touch with you all again when we are in a better position of understanding. This however is a big unknown so please bear with us.

The international group of friends behind the campaign are confident the people of Aotearoa will overcome this setback as valiantly as they have done before. “We look forward to rescheduling We Love Aotearoa and celebrating New Zealand’s success yet again. Kia kaha and much aroha to all.” says event founder, Gabe Newell.

The We ❤Aotearoa, Whānau Fun Day, and We ❤VR events were created to celebrate the 'the team of 5 million' and their great accomplishments as a united country. The celebration was created by a group of friends from around the world who found themselves based in Auckland as COVID-19 spread throughout the globe. Whilst being here they have been overwhelmed by the Manaakitanga and Aroha they have received from the people of Aotearoa.

“We are confident New Zealand will deal with this outbreak in the same way it has dealt with the virus better than any other country in the world to date.” says Teagan Klein, co-organiser of We ❤ Aotearoa.

Thanks for your understanding and best wishes to you all.
