List of Auckland Music Venues for Live Band Auckland Gigs

Auckland Music Concert Venues that let a live band play…

Under Construction…

Here you will find a small list of Auckland Music Venues that accept band gig bookings and how to contact them (IN Alphabetical Order). The aim is to have the most comprehensive list of venues that allow live bands to play in Auckland. This will be an invaluable tool for bands touring New Zealand who are looking for venues that they can play in Auckland. I have also tried to include tech specs or production notes for each venue so that bands looking to book gigs there will know what is provided and what they might need to bring. I’ve also tried to note the capacity of these Auckland Band venues / Small sized Auckland Concert Venues. I hope this will be a useful resource for touring bands or local bands that want to organise a live band Auckland gig.

Remember – we at the Rock Factory do Live Sound and concert production, so if you need extra DJ gear, stage lighting or an Audio Mixing Engineer or Technician, or band backline we can provide you with anything additional you need to make your gig at any of these Auckland Concert Venues a sweet success. Contact us.

If you are looking for venues for other types of events, such as conferences and corporate events, here is a handy resource:

Downstairs there is a small 4-channel Mixing Desk. If doing a gig downstairs, I would bring a mixing desk, snake and foldbacks (or maybe you can use some of the speakers from the main room on-stage?). The main room is a great venue all-rounder venue for up to 400 people. We can provide extra lighting for this venue if you want something flash! This a a great Auckland Concert Venues for touring bands who don’t want to spend too much as most of the gear is already there in-house. In the picture below, we brought in some stage lighting for a gig at Galatos.

This is a picture of a gig at Galatos with live band Auckland, where we brought in extra lighting truss and backlights. Back lighting works best at some Auckland Music Venues, including Galatos. A great little Auckland Concert Venue option, call Andrea to book - everything is right there.
