Auckland City Limits

The 2015 ACL Festival starts next weekend (October 2 - 4) in Austin, and the festival announced that they're launching a new festival...in New Zealand. Aukland City Limits Festival will take place March 19, 2016 at Western Springs Stadium and surrounding parkland, and will feature 40 artists. From the press release:

Inspired by and aligned with the world-class Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin, Texas, Auckland City Limits Music Festival will fuse the best elements of Austin's premier festival with a New Zealand flavor and spirit to create an event that will celebrate the spirit and heritage of Auckland for years to come.

"We want to produce a live music and festival experience that is memorable and spectacular, that expands the format into what we know people want from a music festival nowadays and that is created and curated solely and specifically for Auckland," said Campbell Smith, partner, CRS Presents.
