Big Band Festival


Christchurch’s Big Band Festival is back! The five-day festival of music is filled with massive performances around town – plenty of chances for a boogie over the long weekend!

Catch one of the free outdoor performances from national, local and school Big Bands at Riverside Market and Evolution Square on the Saturday or Sunday.

Or what better way to spend Labour Day Monday than at the Big Band Picnic at the Botanic Gardens – stock up on snacks, grab the picnic rug and settle in for sun, chilled vibes and toe tapping tunes!

Don’t miss the two ticketed shows – Big Band Gala Performance at The Piano - Saturday, 24 October and the Big Band Swing Ball at Welles Street - Sunday, 25 October.
