Christchurch, our biggest NYE party is back! NYE22 will feature Australasian music icons Dragon who will be bringing their well-known hits April Sun in Cuba, Rain, Are You Old Enough and more to the stage! 1 Drop Nation, Amber Williams and local artist Sam Heselwood will support.

NYE22 will start with interactive fun for the whole family and entertainment from Music with Michal plus a kids' countdown, before the main show.

It wouldn’t be New Year's without a huge midnight fireworks display. A large range of food trucks will be selling delicious treats on the night.

This is a smoke-free, vape-free and alcohol-free event (24-hour liquor ban). For quick entry leave your bags at home as these may be searched on entry. No glass allowed.
