Taking over Avondale's opulent The Hollywood for three nights in June, Hollywood Nights is an entirely free festival happening just before and during Aotearoa's inaugural Matariki holiday weekend. Made possible by the Local Activation Fund Programme, each night offers a specially curated bill of live performances and DJs to keep punters toasty this winter, showcasing a diversity of Tāmaki Makaurau-based musical mega-talents.

Night one is a celebration of electronic dance, club-friendly rhythms and sonic excursions, featuring Vanessa Worm (newly based in Auckland), motorik / kosmische super-trio Half Hexagon (Yolanda Fagan, James Milne and Julien Dyne), galaxy brain synthesist Kraus and Friendly Potential DJs, plus a yet to be announced special guest. Night two is an evening of guitar-slinging, multi-instrumental magic, featuring LEAO (Noa Records), Phoebe Rings, Carnivorous Plant Society and DJ Tuāfale Tanoa’i. The Hollywood will host a massive hip hop and RnB rager on the concluding Friday, starring Church & AP, PollyHill, LB, FABLE and Lutherlancelot. It's exceptionally rare that such a straight up awesome high quality lineup would be made available to local gig goers for free — make the most of it by securing your spot pronto via the ticket link below...
