The Performance Arcade is returning to Wellington Waterfront this February with an exciting programme of free live music. A hand-picked selection of Aotearoa’s best bands and artists will provide mellow afternoon sessions leading into vibrant night time sets at The Arcade’s central waterfront location.

Having become a highly anticipated and acclaimed event in Wellington’s cultural calendar, The Performance Arcade brings together Live Art, Music and Performance in a specially curated event. The Arcade Live Music Series will give music-lovers a taste of home with a mixture of up-and-coming and well established acts from across New Zealand, programmed across two weekends. Bring a blanket, grab a beer at our pop-up bar and relax on the grass for a weekend of fresh live music in the sunshine!

The Arcade programme offers a diverse selection of live performance art installations to accompany the Live Music Series, visit our website for full programme information.

Visitors will be able to purchase food and drink at the event, making it the perfect place to spend a day or night out with friends and family.
