On Saturday 23 March we’ll be joining the star-studded line-up at the Sounds On festival at The Oval, North Harbour Stadium. With a raft of Aotearoa’s favourite acts and a strong commitment to environmental and social awareness, we’ll be there to join the fun. Our team will be at the festival raising awareness about litter in our marine environment, as well as running beach clean-ups at Takapuna and Milford beaches en route to the gig.
To join in, simply jump on the specially chartered ‘clean-up bus’ from Auckland CBD at stop number 7055, The Civic, Queen St at 10.00am on Saturday 23 March. This bus will arrive at Takapuna Beach at 10.30am and Milford Beach at 11.15am for clean-ups of both beaches. You can catch this bus for free with your Sounds On ticket. The clean up bus will arrive at Sounds On at approximately 12:15pm.
If you’re taking your own vehicle to the festival, or just want to join the clean-ups anyway, just meet us at Takapuna Beach or Milford Beach anytime from 9.00am to 11.30am. Look out for our big blue flags. All equipment (sacks and gloves) and rubbish disposal provided.
Through a partnership with Auckland Transport, festival-goers can catch event buses and trains within Auckland at no extra cost. Just show your Sounds On ticket to travel free. This will dramatically reduce emissions and congestion; while providing punters with a fuss-free and safe way to travel to the event. Find out more about event buses here.
