From Auckland Council:

Even more free music and movies in parks this summer

 

Roll out the picnic blanket and enjoy some fantastic free entertainment in the great Kiwi outdoors this summer with Auckland Council’s popular Music and Movies in Parks’ 2015 events.

The lineup features 30 musical acts and 22 movies played in parks across Auckland, from Saturday 10 January until Sunday 28 March, 2015.

Councillor Alf Filipaina, Arts, Culture and Events Committee Chair, says the events are a great opportunity to enjoy a variety of music and movies in some of Auckland’s fantastic outdoor places.

“There is something for everyone to enjoy. People can choose from a variety of music – pop, hip-hop, rock, jazz or whatever takes their fancy. They can also enjoy a blockbuster movie under the stars with friends, family and whanau,” he says.

“We have even more movies and musical acts than in previous years. As the events have been so popular we wanted to offer even more choice; I hope everyone comes along to these free events again this summer.”

There is something for every music fan, with a diverse list of popular local acts such as Tahuna Breaks, Young Sid aka Sydney Diamond, singer-songwriter Jamie McDell, rhythm and blues guitarist Midge Marsden and rock band DevilSkin.

Movie buffs can look forward to free outdoor screenings of family-friendly blockbusters including Maleficent, Frozen, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Fault in Our Stars and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and homegrown hits like The Pa Boys.

Music and Movies in Parks 2015 would like to thank Auckland Council local boards for their support, and its family of sponsors, including Mediaworks, Cadbury Dairy Milk and NZ Home Loans.
