Friends of the Festival

Festival Friends help create such a good atmosphere at all the events during Festival time. And, their presence and support ensures that we’re able to continue to bring amazing art moments to our city. We appreciate it.

When the Festival comes to town there's a new sort of energy in the air!

International and local artists of the highest calibre transform Auckland with their world-class dance, theatre, circus, cabaret, music and fine art.

By becoming a Friend of the Festival you can tap into this vibe and help us bring life-changing arts and entertainment to people of all ages and backgrounds.
