Last year we brought you the news that Auckland was getting a New Year’s Eve festival and everyone pretty much lost their shit. Why? Because when it comes to the Christmas holiday period, Aucklanders make a beeline for the Coromandel or Omaha or anywhere other than the City of Sails because sticking around is like being in a ghost town.
And now, it’s time to get even more excited because we’ve got another reason to stay in town—come the first of January, Auckland’s hosting an epic New Year’s Day event! You know it’s going to be a great, because it’s by the same people who have been putting on top-notch parties for more than a decade—Highlife.
The event is set to be held at Smales Farm on the fringe of Takapuna. There will be not one, not two but THREE stages that’ll host both international and local DJs, musicians, singers, dancers and performers. Naturally, there will be some epic eats (the details of which are yet to be confirmed).
But that’s not all! While there’ll be plenty of space to chill out, there are also private party suites for those who want to start 2018 in style.
Tickets are strictly limited and go on sale on July 20.
What: Highlife New Year’s Day
