Waiheke Jazz, Art & Music Festival
Trade in the chocolate for a taste of jazz this Easter weekend.
Calling all crooners, groovers and lovers of a good time. This Easter weekend, Waiheke Island will come alive with the bodacious jazz beats of more than a dozen international musicians for the 57th annual Waiheke Jazz, Art & Music Festival.
The four-day festival features an unmissable schedule of events set to keep the family bopping from midday to midnight.
Catch the soul-rock of Wellington music royalty Trinity Roots set amongst the natural amphitheatre of the Rangihoua Olive Estate, or dose up on some late night swing from The Wellington City Shake-'Em-On-Downers, peppered by the flavours of horn-toting blues brothers Hopetoun Brown at Oneroa's Artworks Theatre. Those sticking around until Easter Monday — and who were lucky enough to nab tickets — will see the addition of the Jazz Long Lunch at Batch Winery.
