Don’t miss out on New Zealands biggest beach festival on Takapuna Beach, Auckland…


Waterbourne celebrates music at the highest level with a range of genres covered and fun for all across an epic 3 weeks. Music nights are held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday where there will be local and international artists joining us for New Zealand’s biggest beach festival.

Dance, drink, dine and soak up the last of the Summer with Waterbourne either from the rooftop bar, down on the sand or right in front of our stage! Majority of the events are free but 4 of the nights will be ticketed with restricted entry. 

Unwind after work on a Friday and enter the weekend on a high note by joining us for drinks on the rooftop bar that overlooks the beautiful Takapuna Beach and has direct views of our stage. You don’t want to miss out on seeing the talented local and international artists we have hand picked for your enjoyment.

Whether you are looking to enjoy the rooftop area with a glass of wine, or dance on the ground level. There is something for all ages on the Fridays.

There will also be two ticketed events on Friday 5th and 19th of March, which will have some of New Zealands most iconic acts performing!

Saturday’s at Waterbourne bring life to the beach and you can expect these nights to deliver high level entertainment and experiences. There are three nights to pick from with our main event on the 13th of March being ticketed and the other two will be free.

The ticketed night on March 13th is a limited event and is strictly R18. Gates will open at 12pm and the show will finish at 9.45pm.

Tickets will sell fast and you don’t want to miss out on New Zealand’s biggest beach festival.

Unwind, relax and join us for some easy beach vibing because our Sunday sessions will be providing the low-key weekend live entertainment you’ve been searching for. This is the perfect opportunity to squeeze the most out of Summer and your weekends.

Every Sunday includes free music nights as well as free opportunities to try out such a paddle boarding, water safety courses and more. Waterbourne guests can also enter the Run for a Cleaner Coastline which is a fundraiser to help protect and rebuild New Zealands coastline!
