Waiheke International Jazz Festival

Waiheke Island will play host to an eclectic line-up of Jazz musicians this Easter weekend.

This Easter weekend, over 170 local and international musicians will have Waiheke Island humming during the Waiheke International Jazz Festival. 

The Good Friday Groove – headlined by Kiwi music veteran Dave Dobbyn – will kick off at midday on Friday, April 14, at the picturesque Rangihoua Estate in Rocky Bay. Waiheke will showcase three days of intimate events at various venues across the island all Easter weekend.

On Saturday, festivities will get underway with The Daytime Jazzabout, followed by the Evening Concert Series and the late-night Supper Club, before capping off the weekend with the Grand Finale on Easter Sunday.

Among the international line-up is Australia's Nichaud Fitzgibbon, Cactus Channel and returning acts George Washingmachine (Sydney) and the Stefan Nagler Trio (Germany).
