By far the best place to be in the Heart of the City for great eats, beats and brews of every description.
In a nutshell:
Take TimeOut between shows / Listen to the music at the iHeartRadio Sound Lounge / Relax in the Fale Ula
The heart of the Festival, the TimeOut Festival Garden in Aotea Square keeps on pumping out the good stuff. By far the best place in the Heart of the City to meet fellow Festival goers, spot artists and soak up the atmosphere. The TimeOut Festival Garden is great for eats, beats and brews of every description.
You'll be rapt with Niki Hastings-McFall's Fale Ula, a gorgeous installation of synthetic lei bringing the TimeOut Festival Garden alive with colour, and you'll be kept company by the mysterious characters in Lisa Reihana's stunning and provocative video work Tai Whetuki: House of Death On the TimeOut Festival Garden's Big Screen.
By day the TimeOut Festival Garden is Auckland's most brightly adorned family picnic spot; by night, it's perfect for a soiree under the stars. Be there, at the Square, to experience it all. On the TimeOut Festival Garden's Big Screen.
