To keep things fresh for our supporters, this year Highlife Entertainment is taking a break from Matakana and will be moving the Highlife NYE Experience back over to Waiheke Island for a premium R20 Highlife NYE event that will be held in the beautiful surroundings of Stonyridge Vineyard.

This year's Highlife NYE Experience is restricted to half of the Matakana event’s capacity and tickets are very limited, so get your friends together, get your accommodation sorted and purchase your tickets now before the prices go up and they eventually sell out!

The Highlife NYE Experience will have a widespread range of all your favourite music genres including house, funk, soul, electro, dubstep, hip-hop, R'nB, dub, Latin, jazz and more with a titan line up of international and local acts across four stages!

Keeping some of the surprises we have in-store for you a secret will ensure your experience that much more spontaneous, but do expect a world-class fireworks display, fantasy performers, delicious food stalls, warplane aerial acrobatics, crowd interactive activities, great people, awesome music and much much more!

A full transport service including extra ferries, taxis and buses will be organised to transfer guests to, from and around the Island on New Years Eve.

For those people not staying on Waiheke, extra ferries will be organised to take people off the Island and back to Auckland. Thanks to the good people at Red Bull, these ferries will be complete with DJs, food, drink and music so your experience doesn't finish at the event.

This is the one you have all been waiting for so stay tuned to the site for regular updates!

A different ticket system (wristband) will be used for these sailings and no other Fullers issued tickets will be accepted. It is necessary to book your NYE ferry ticket (wristband) via Fullers website in advance and ideally when you purchase your event ticket.
