Auckland Live

Auckland Live is proud to announce the full 2022 Summer in the Square line-up, with Aotea Square coming to life as Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s vibrant central destination for free, outdoor family fun this summer. Chill out in the urban garden as sunny days turn to balmy nights and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat with friends while enjoying back-to-back curated festival weekends. With a programme packed with music, fashion, circus, fiesta, dance, spoken word, and films, this stellar line-up of fierce local talent has something for the whole whānau right in the centre of our city, from 28 January - 26 February.

Part of Auckland Live's Summer in the Square is Auckland Pride’s annual Aotea Square takeover, marking the final weekend of the Auckland Pride Festival with a celebration of Queer joy in the city centre. Friday night’s programme includes guest spots from Jewels of the Cook Islands and Fine Fatale, who will warm up Aucklanders for the full Pride Party takeover on 26 February. Then, Pride Party performances will sprawl across two stages, with food trucks and good vibes a-plenty, and a pop-up garden bar to keep you going throughout the day. When the sun goes down, grab a drink and party the night away with an amazing line-up of DJs, drag performances, and musicians, including headline performances by Afro Pasifika DJ Lady Shaka and award-winning RnB artist Disciple Pati. This will be an unmissable chance to see some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s finest Queer artists in a weekend packed full of celebratory pride.
