Festival & Ticketing

  1. Festival events are ticketed through our official ticketing partners. For the 2024 Festival, these ticketing partners were:

    To ensure you are purchasing genuine tickets please buy via aaf.co.nz, aklfest.co.nz or aucklandfestival.co.nz, which link directly to our partners, or through our partners directly. We cannot guarantee your tickets will be valid if purchased through any other channel. Please beware of ticket onsellers such as Viagogo and DO NOT purchase on websites that are not official partners of the Festival.
  2. Ticket prices include GST but exclude booking fees and credit card charges. These charges will be added to the final total before you confirm the transaction. See Your Tickets for more information.
  3. It is important you view the individual events ticketing providers’ websites for their terms and conditions of purchase.
  4. Some seats, other than Premium and A Reserve seats, may have sightline or sound restrictions. See Your Tickets for descriptions of our reserves and seating types.
  5. All tickets are subject to availability. They are restricted by offer dates and the number of seats available in a given reserve or price type.
