Fred Again in Wellington: What you need to know

In case you have missed the hype this week, UK DJ/ producer Fred Again is playing a one-off pop-up show in Wellington on Friday.

Tickets for the Waitangi Park show were officially announced with an Instagram Story post on the musician's account and sold out within minutes.

If you are lucky enough to be heading to the show, here is what you need to know.

What time should I get there?

The show is at Waitangi Park on Wellington's waterfront and is rated R18.

Doors open at 4pm before the show runs 6pm-10pm. The event is a sell-out with no door sales, so if you don't have a ticket, you'll need to stay away.

How should I get there?

Ticketholders are encouraged to walk along the waterfront (in front of Te Papa) and join the queue heading south into Waitangi Park.

Bad news if you fancy scooting to the area - shared e-scooters will be geofenced near Waitangi Park so won't be able to access the main arena.

Car users are being warned the Barnett St car park is shut today, and there'll be restricted parking on Herd Street as the event organisers get set up.

Attendees are also being asked to use ride shares where possible to avoid congestion in the area. Cable Street should be avoided by car where possible this afternoon and late evening as there will be high numbers of foot traffic in the area.

What about drinking?

The event has a special liquor license – but attendees need to remember a liquor ban still applies to the waterfront and Courtenay Place as well as neighbouring streets.

You should also be aware that flouting this could be costly with fines up to $250, so it's recommended to finish alcoholic drinks before leaving the venue.

Anything else I should know?

Yes - make sure you stay safe and look after your mates. 

Late night safe zone Take 10 will be in two spots, its usual Courtenay/Taranaki Street site and the pop-up indoor venue at 47 Courtenay Place, both offering water, lollies and support to anyone who needs it. 

You can drop in, charge your phone, play some games and chill for a bit – they're there to make sure everyone is staying safe while having a good time in town.
