After the success of the inaugural Auckland City Limits Music Festival in 2016 (inspired by our own namesake Austin City Limits Music Festival, now going into its 17th year), organizers and our friends down under are thrilled to announce the 2018 Auckland City Limits Music Festival in Auckland, New Zealand and the first-ever Sydney City Limits Music Festival, in Sydney, Australia, taking place in February/March 2018. The lineups include Beck, Justice, Grace Jones, Phoenix, and Vance Joy (Sydney only), as well as performances from Tish Sultana, George Ezra (Auckland only), The Libertines, The Head and the Heart, Car Seat Headrest and many more.

Sydney promoter Secret Sounds, in partnership with C3 Presents and Live Nation Entertainment, are pleased to announce the inaugural Sydney City Limits Music Festival, which will take place on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the lush inner city oasis of Centennial Park. Tickets are now on sale here.

Auckland promoter CRS Presents, in partnership with C3 Presents and Live Nation Entertainment, will deliver the second annual Auckland City Limits Music Festival on March 3, 2018 to Western Springs stadium, and surrounding fields and lakeside park. The inaugural festival, held in 2016, was a resounding success, with the New Zealand Herald proclaiming, “Hats off to the organizers of the inaugural Auckland City Limits. It was one of the easiest, smoothest, most well-run music festivals Auckland has ever had.” Tickets are on sale now here.

Both festivals will continue the Austin City Limits Music Festival tradition of including top culinary options, family fun with Kiddie Limits, and local art. Additional details about these options will be released soon.
