Elemental Nights is an exclusive curated concert series showcasing an impressive international line-up alongside beloved Aotearoa acts. The 2023 series includes the return of UK rock band IDLES, Mercury Prize nominated rapper Loyle Carner, Swedish pop superstar Tove Lo, and Bic Runga presenting the 20th anniversary of her album ‘Beautiful Collision’. The midwinter festival transforms Tāmaki Makaurau’s most iconic venues into temporary works of art, giving you a chance to experience a line-up of world class entertainment right on your doorstep. Elemental Nights is delivered by Live Nation, and Elemental AKL is delivered by Auckland Unlimited, Auckland’s economic and cultural agency.   

You can find the event listings on the website here. Sign up to the mailing list to get updates, and make sure you follow Elemental Nights on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates and other offers.

We recommend you arrive as close to the door opening time as you can, so you have time to get a refreshment and get settled in. You can find the door opening time on your ticket or on the Elemental Nights website.

A range of food and beverage will be available in the venues. There will be water stations in the venue and we encourage people to bring their own reusable (empty) water bottles for filling.
