Located at Auckland’s Silo Park, the New Year’s Eve festival will be a small-scale musical celebration with strictly limited tickets available. Wondergarden was conceived to provide Aucklanders with something a little bit special and a little bit different from what is currently on offer in the city. 2016 is the first iteration of an event that organisers aim to grow into one of the city’s essential summer dates of the future.

‘Wondergarden is a place for people who want to stay in Auckland for New Year’s Eve and still have something special to do,’ says event manager Reuben Bonner, ‘We’re extremely proud of this lineup, and excited to offer something for friends, families, and party people of all ages who are sticking around the city.’

As well as a full afternoon and evening of New Zealand’s most exciting musicians playing the main stage, Wondergarden also features roaming performers and a dedicated family zone with children’s performers and entertainment. In addition there is site theming and lighting installations from Angus Muir, along with sumptuous street food from the Food Space food trucks, all taking place on site at Silo Park, one of the city’s best loved places.

Earlybird tickets go on sale at 9am, September 9th from iTicket and adult, children, and family passes are available.
