As the leader in live arts and entertainment, Auckland Live is actively contributing to the vibrancy and creativity of our city. Our iconic venues and public spaces are our stages for presenting a programme of live arts and entertainment for the enjoyment and inspiration of Aucklanders and visitors, every day. 

We champion Auckland internationally to secure award-winning, big name shows, musicals and concerts. Collaborating with national and international arts companies and festivals, we present the best variety of crowd-pulling performances. 

To ignite a passion for the arts and support the creative sector, we also provide opportunities for people of all ages to engage with the performing arts. This includes family-friendly live performances, free programmes, and workshops throughout the year.

Delivering inspiring experiences across the city

It’s an absolute thrill to look around a performance space and see the light in an audience’s eyes when an arts experience gives them not only what they were imagining, but so much more.
