Tauranga is set to host an exciting and diverse line-up of international music acts and sporting events this Auckland Anniversary weekend.

More than 18,000 people are expected to attend the annual One Love Festival at Tauranga Domain on Saturday and Sunday. To support safe operations for this event, there will be a number of road closures in the city centre, including a section of Cameron Road.

Large crowds are also expected at Bay Oval as the BLACKCAPS take on India in the second and third ODIs on Saturday and Monday respectively, followed by the White Ferns versus India on Tuesday.

Soper Reserve will host the inaugural Good Vibes Festival on Friday afternoon while American rock guitarist, Slash, will take to the stage at Trustpower Baypark Arena later that night.

City Events Manager, Gareth Wallis said council wanted to encourage residents and visitors to make the most of what the city has to offer this holiday weekend but also plan ahead.

“If you’re coming into the city, please take the time to familiarise yourself with the road closures and recommended routes so you can navigate safely through the city centre.”

Mr Wallis said the weekend was shaping up to be a busy one – cricket fans were in for a real treat and there was something for everyone to enjoy.

“We’ve been working closely with event organisers to continue to grow the city’s reputation as one of the county’s premiere event-friendly destinations. This collaborative approach is reflected in the great array of events scheduled across Tauranga this anniversary weekend.”
