Latest Update

24 January 2022

As Aotearoa moves back into RED under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, we send aroha to you all, and especially our friends and whānau in live events who are undergoing major impacts.

This is not our first time riding the wave of uncertainty, and we have many different scenarios in place for AAF 2022. We are just over six weeks out from our opening and working through the various framework options for our Festival. We will be in touch with more information as soon as we are able.

For now, please stay safe and if you are unwell, get tested and stay home.

Kia kaha tātou. Kia haumaru te noho.

AAF 2022 COVID-19 Response

Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our artists, staff, crew, and audiences.

In line with the Government’s COVID-19 Protection Framework and the policies of our venues, audience members will be required to present a valid My Vaccine Pass to attend shows and events at AAF 2022. 

Individual COVID-19 policies for each of our venues can be found here. Please take this into consideration when purchasing your ticket(s).

If this means you are no longer able to attend a show or event that you have purchased ticket(s) for, you are eligible for a refund. Please contact your point of purchase directly – details can be found here.

If AAF needs to cancel a performance you have purchased ticket(s) for due to COVID-19, you are eligible for a refund. Your point of purchase will contact you directly – there is nothing you need to do on your end.

All AAF COVID-19 Ticketing Terms and Conditions can be found here.
