What is the Auckland Blues Festival?
Ladies, Gentlemen, Non Binary and everyone in between, we are super excited to announce the launch of our brand new passion project. Auckland Blues Festival. After nearly two decades of planning and waiting for just the right moment, we just couldn’t wait any more.
November 12 2022 we will be delivering a beautifully thought through, family focussed boutique and bespoke blues festival designed for discerning tastes.
The festival will be a one day/night affair held up on our gorgeous AUM festival site with two stages covering all things blues. No DJs for this one, this is pure live music, dancing, and art throughout. Your inaugural show will feature some of the finest blues sounds from throughout New Zealand, accompanied by a few stunning international artists.

We will also be showing off some of the incredible festival art we have accumulated with AUM Festival and there will be live performance artists on site.
All of this will be presented over two stages, the mighty White Stag complete with shade canopies and rain cover should we need it surrounded in lush rolling hills and Kanuka trees, and the Blues Jam Bar.
There will be delicious food trucks, boutique licensed cocktail bars, busses to and from site as well as glamping, camping and other luxury on-site accommodation options.
People have been calling for a quality blues event for many years. Well here it is. Designed with love and care.
Don’t expect this to be a `booze’ fest. This is not how we do festivals. Expect warm, welcoming vibes, friendly smiling faces, world class production including one of the best sound systems in the world, and key attention to detail on one of the most beautiful sites you can imagine. Expect a day in paradise and to be treated like family.
Please note that Auckland Blues Festival is a 100% New Zealand owned and operated project.
