As we roll into February, we really get stuck into the new year and back into our normal routines. The holidays are over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the summer sun and all of the events that are still on offer! Auckland isn’t letting up with some big musical acts playing this month as well as other great events!

Here’s what’s on:

City of Ales 2020

Sick of wine tasting want to try some of New Zealand’s best craft beer? Then look no further than Auckland’s best little beer festival – City of Ales!

“Bringing Classics Back” is the theme this year, with an aim to bringing patrons a bevy of classic styles from several thousand years of brewing history. City of Ales 2020 will give you the chance to try what-has-been-great and can be again! You can look forward to excellent examples from the likes of McLeods, 8 Wired, Brewaucracy, North End, Behemoth, and more. Tickets include entry into the event and three beer tokens to start you off, and being the scenic vista of the Ponsonby Cruising Club at Westhaven Marina, this will have views to match!

Play in the Park

Did you feel out-priced by all the big summer festivals this year? Looking for that summer music experience and catch some great local acts? Then Play In the Park is for you!

Sylvia Park will host an array of talented Kiwi musicians for you to sit back and enjoy or jump on your feet and dance to their brilliant beats. While enjoying live music you can decide on what to eat from 9 fantastic eateries including takeaways from Asian-inspired Hawker & Roll, Mediterranean eats from Casablanca, gastropub grub at Garrisons, meat or vegetarian options from Better Burger!

Being totally free this is an event the whole family can enjoy without making a dent in the pocket!

Elton John – Farewell Yellow Brick Road

Sir Elton John is bringing his farewell tour to Auckland, being his last international tour, this will be your final chance to see the man in Action!

Recently crowned by Billboard as the most successful performing male solo artist of all time, this farewell set is built to deliver his famed songbook to spellbound audiences. Performing as his special guest is Australian singer-songwriter, Tate Sheridan. Shows from all across the world have been getting rave reviews and for good reason! Tickets will sell out fast, so get in quick.


Riding off the back of their critically acclaimed new album – the first in 13 years – the return of triple Grammy Award-winning Californian rockers, Tool, is a show that just can’t be missed!

Fear Inoculum debuted at #1 in New Zealand and across the world, with critics united in praise, Rolling Stone describing it as: “a formal masterpiece that should stand the test of time.” Their live shows are just as spellbinding, their immersive live visual experience is as brilliant as the band’s music itself, and not to be missed
