The Power Station

The Power Station

The Power Station, Auckland's own version of New York's Apollo Theatre or London's Brixton Academy.
33 Mt Eden Rd Grafton

P. 09 368 1038

New York has the Apollo Theatre, London has Brixton Academy, and Auckland has the Powerstation, an intimate venue at the bottom of the world that has punched above its weight since the mid-1980s, hosting some of the best and biggest acts on the planet.

In a city where too many celebrated venues have succumbed to developer's plans and fickle trends, the Powerstation has continued to make live music history that connects the dots between the Ramones, Run DMC and Paul Weller. Those artists sit alongside a legendary line-up of Powerstation visitors which includes the Pixies, Ben Harper, Debbie Harry, Beastie Boys, MGMT, Marilyn Manson, Arctic Monkeys, Public Enemy, Rollins Band, The Charlatans, Spiritualized and many more.
