Auckland's Synthony in the Domain music festival is being postponed due to "potentially unsafe" weather hitting the city on Saturday afternoon.
Organisers have decided to move the festival which was due to take place in Auckland's Domain on Saturday, April 1.
The show will now take place on Sunday, April 2.
In a statement issued on Friday afternoon, promoters of the show said: "Heavy rain is expected to spread into central Auckland from late Saturday afternoon. There are existing thunderstorms embedded in this rain band bringing a risk of localised downpours. The forecast rain rates within the downpours are 25-40mm per hour.
"The Met Service also advises that they are considering issuing a Severe Thunderstorm Watch on Saturday morning, which could render the event unsafe. Therefore, in the interest of public comfort and safety, Synthony will now take place on Sunday April 2, when drier and more pleasant weather is forecast."
They added all tickets remain valid and are automatically transferred.
Shapeshifter, Sir Dave Dobbyn, Tiki Taane and Kimbra are on the lineup of the event, along with dance duo Sachi.
The inaugural event will feature a live orchestra, electronic dance music, DJs, performers and promises impressive visuals over two stages and seven hours.
Organisers are billing it as "a breathtaking fusion of electronic dance music, live orchestra, DJs, internationally acclaimed performers, and spectacular visuals".
It's due to start at sunset and over 20,000 people are expected to attend.
