Part of New Year Celebrations


All Ages


Christchurch City Council have reluctantly decided to cancel the planned New Year’s Eve party in North Hagley Park due to the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, planning is still underway for other events in our summer programme. Keep checking What’s On Christchurch to see what events are on in Christchurch over summer.

Celebrate and see in the New Year at Christchurch’s biggest NYE party featuring iconic kiwi rockers Opshop and pop-rock band stellar* playing live and for free in North Hagley Park.

Opshop, fronted by Jason Kerrison will be playing all of their crowd favourites at NYE21 including One Day, Maybe and No Ordinary Thing.

Stellar* who rose to fame in the 90s and early 2000s with hits like Violent, Undone and Part Of Me are excited to perform some of their biggest hits in front of a home-crowd.

NYE21 in Hagley Park will start with interactive fun for the whole family and a kids’ countdown around 8pm before a line-up of home-grown talent takes the stage to have you celebrating all night long.

DJ GETSET with H Kaa on live vocals will get the party started, followed by Christchurch power-pop act Imperial April before stellar* and Opshop take to the stage.

The night will start with family entertainment from Music with Michal whose song Brave won ‘Best Children’s Song’ at the 2021 New Zealand Children’s Music Awards.

It wouldn’t be New Year’s without a huge midnight fireworks display bought to you by the Fireworks Professionals.

A large range of food trucks will be selling delicious treats on the night. More information including a full line-up of performers and timings will be announced closer to the event.

Calling all young talent, you could perform onstage at NYE21 with The Hits 5 Minutes of Fame - details coming soon!

This is a smoke-free, vape-free and alcohol-free event. For quick entry don’t bring a bag as these may be searched on entry. No glass allowed.

Christchurch City Council remains ready to comply with any new Government advice about COVID-19 if the situation changes in New Zealand.
