BIG FAN 1st Birthday Series

No items found.

We are thrilled to celebrate our first year since opening with our first birthday series to mark this special milestone. We have put together an incredible local lineup of artists and comedians as well as a studio open day set for 8th to 11th November.

Incorporating comedy, music and a public studio open day, the series will showcase some of Aotearoa's finest established and emerging artists and comedians. We are also opening the doors for anyone to check out our facilities during the studio open day and chat to our studio team.

Since opening, the world-class recording studios have been used by over 550 creatives to write, experiment and record music - some for the very first time - and the venue has played host to more than 100 shows and events featuring nearly 300 artists - collectively involving almost 900 creatives performing on stage and drawing an impressive 8,500+ fans through the doors. As a multi-purpose not-for-profit music space, it has also successfully delivered four key programmes with 31 core participants and engaged a further 45 creatives.

"I couldn’t be prouder of our team and everything we’ve managed to achieve at BIG FAN in our first year, and I’m so excited to build on that success in the years to come. I also want to say a huge thank you to everyone in the community that has supported us and helped make this first year such a special one, we couldn’t have done it without you.” Joel Little
