North West Country & Loop are excited to announce a Summer Series of Free Entry Shows this summer, featuring a range of exciting artists in Auckland’s beautiful North West region. 

All shows are free entry at three of the North West region’s most-picturesque venues, with a range of local food, beer & wine available at each location. 

"We're excited to be bringing this Summer Series of Free Shows to North West Country,” says Phelan Pirrie, North West Country Manager. 

“With Kiwis exploring their own backyard more than ever, we hope these shows will give people a chance to check out some of NZ's finest venues, and a sample of what the stunning North West region has to offer, with a great afternoon of local music, food & beverage."

The first sees Barnaby Weir appearing at The Riverhead. The frontman for Fly My Pretties & The Black Seeds will be performing a special solo set, live at New Zealand’s oldest riverhead tavern.

Getting set to release a new album in 2021, Summer Thieves will perform at The Hunting Lodge on the new date of Sunday April 18. Known for their ability to get the party going, the band will take to the lawn of The Hunting Lodge nestled among Waimauku’s rolling hills. 

The following week will see one of NZ’s finest soul/R&B singers Bailey Wiley performing live at Hallertau’s Riverhead home-base. After performing at festivals across NZ this summer, this show will see Wiley coming home and playing in Hallertau’s tranquil Biergarten.

All shows will showcase the amazing food & beverage on offer in Auckland’s North West region, just 30 minutes from Auckland city. Each show is free entry, with early arrival encouraged. Presented by North West Country & Loop.
