Auck­land­heats up with Live Sum­mer in the CBD


Auck­land’s big­gest back­yard party is back.

The Auck­land Live Sum­mer in the Square will be held from De­cem­ber 1 to 23, and Jan­uary 9 to Fe­bru­ary 24 at Aotea Square.

Auck­land Live direc­tor Rob­bie Macrae says the free pro­gramme will be jam­packed with en­ter­tain­ment, ac­tiv­i­ties and events for ev­ery­one

He adds it will be a great time to be out, en­joy­ing the re­laxed sum­mer hol­i­day vibe Auck­land has to of­fer.

‘‘[It] show­cases the many Auck­land com­mu­ni­ties and peo­ple who come to­gether ev­ery year to share what’s on of­fer, whether it’s singing, danc­ing, play­ing or just kick­ing back,’’ Macrae says.

An eclec­tic lineup of mu­si­cians and DJs from both New Zealand and abroad are ex­pected to be a part of the an­nual event.

Lo­cal arts com­pa­nies will stage min­ishows and run work­shops.

There will also be lunchtime, evening and week­end open-air per­for­mances.

Macrae says the Aotea precinct will be dressed up for the sum­mer sea­son with its De­cem­ber cen­tre­piece, the two-storey high Lego Christ­mas Tree.

The full Fe­bru­ary pro­gramme is yet to be an­nounced.
