Auckland, the first major city in the world to welcome 2019, is planning a visual and entertainment extravaganza to light up Auckland’s cityscape this New Year’s Eve.
For the first time, Vector Lights on Auckland Harbour Bridge will join the celebrations with a sparkling display from 9 p.m., before building up to a countdown to midnight, when it will pulse in time with the Auckland Sky Tower. At the stroke of midnight, Vector Lights will explode into a 5-minute spectacular designed to complement SKYCITY’s fireworks display, then continue until 1 a.m.
Those lucky enough to be down at Silo Park for the Wondergarden Festival will have a perfect view of the bridge and the fireworks alongside world-class international and local acts. Up town on Federal Street, SKYCITY will host Auckland’s biggest street party, headlined by Jupiter Project and Jetski Safari, from 5 p.m.
British DJ, Nightmares on Wax, the headline act for Wondergarden, is excited to see in the New Year in Auckland. More FM is giving one lucky couple the chance to win the key to Auckland for the best New Year’s Eve Experience.
