Auckland’s favourite mid-year festival, Elemental AKL is delighted to announce the addition of new events and experiences to its world-class season of curated arts, eats and beats coming to Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland this July. 

From 14 – 31 July, Elemental AKL 2022 will whet the appetite and stir the senses as the very best food, performing and visual arts, and live music transforms venues and stages, art galleries and restaurants, cultural hubs, and public spaces across the region. 

Tickets to the 50-plus events have been selling fast, with some already sold out and others nearing capacity while excitement is building for the free events also on offer. 

Just announced in the festival line-up are a further eight unique Elemental AKL events and experiences:

Tātaki Auckland Unlimited’s Director of Arts, Entertainment and Events, Richard Clarke, says the city should be excited at the growing appetite for Elemental AKL 2022.

“For events to sell out weeks before the festival begins is a strong indication of the desire among Auckanders and visitors to attend live gigs, dine out, engage with arts, and get together throughout the region,” says Richard Clarke. 

“Elemental AKL is exceeding expectations as an event that energises and engages Tāmaki Makaruau, attracts visitors, and stimulates the local environment to the benefit of everyone.” 

Clarke says Elemental AKL’s event partners are vital to its succcess, with the region’s creatives and visionaries bringing optimism and passion to their festival programming.

“It’s thanks to our event partners that we have the privilege of celebrating the uniqueness of Tāmaki Makaurau, and to position it as the best of the best when it comes to all things arts, eats and beats,” he says. 

“Today’s announcement of further Elemental AKL events and event partners from across Tāmaki Makaurau puts the festival on course to be a highlight of the mid-year calendar.”
