An Orange Light at the End of the Tunnel!

As New Zealand is granted orange-light status from 30 December, Highlife Entertainment is thrilled to announce the Sunsetter Food, Wine & Music Festival is happening at North Harbour Domain from 12pm – 9pm on Saturday 19 February 2022.

Returning for its fifth year, the multi-sensory Sunsetter Food, Wine & Music Festival unites some of New Zealand’s premier wineries, craft breweries and eateries alongside an audiophile’s cornucopia of popular international and local artists.

Highlife Entertainment Founder Adam Bennett said the one-day festival has something for everyone to enjoy, whether it’s indulging in fine food and wine or dancing to your favourite music, guaranteeing an experience like no other on the Auckland events scene this summer.

“This is going to be a really special day for Aucklanders. After so long in lockdown and enduring restrictions, we have an opportunity to welcome back New Zealand food, wine and music lovers with some of the best offerings across the board. It’s exactly what we all need to shake off the trials of the past year,” said Bennett.

Sunsetter Food, Wine & Music Festival 2022 is proudly sponsored by Bombay Sapphire gin, Heineken, Aperol Spritz and George FM. Local pop-rock heroes stellar* lead the charge of incredible artists to be performing at the event, along with indie popsters Summer Thieves, world sounds from Latinaotearoa, vocal powerhouse Ella Monnery, electrifying live DJ sets from SO&SO, Brydie Tong, General Lee, DJ Reminise, Tim Phin, Grant Marshall, Dick Johnson, Murry Sweetpants, Warren Duncan and Izak Chads and the party-starting grooves of Krispy & The Pooch, sax master Lewis McCallum and Weird Together Drums.
