Wellington’s iconic concert series returns to fill your summer nights with the sounds of Aotearoa’s best and brightest! Come early to grab a good picnic spot, and as the sun goes down see the gardens transform with a magical light display by MJF Lighting.
The acts for this extra special Gardens Magical Mystery night have been revealed!
Don't miss this rare chance to see the legendary Chicago Smoke Shop (30 year reunion). Get ready for a funky good time with a ten-piece, horn-driven rhythm & blues extravaganza featuring original band members.
That's not all the great news - the amazing Julia Deans finally returns to Wellington as the opening act! From honey-sweet falsetto to menacing growl, the voice of Julia Deans has offered light and shade to a variety of musical endeavours over the years.
If the weather is looking troublesome for any of the performance days, a call will be made by 7pm as to whether it will go ahead or not so keep an eye on our Facebook page.
