The Amphitheatre has been described by internationally recognised singers and musicians as probably the best outdoor venue in New Zealand. Renowned for its acoustics, sight-lines and atmosphere it is a truly memorable location. Rather than simply being an uncomfortable slope on a hill, the Black Barn Amphitheatre was carved out of the hillside and purpose built from scratch. We went to a lot of trouble to ensure the space was the perfect outdoor concert venue taking careful consideration of acoustics and views and burying everything from lighting, sound and even eftpos cabling underground. Large flat grassed terraces mean concert-goers sit in comfort with close uninterrupted views of the stage and the whole of Hawkes Bay as their backdrop. Every terrace is fairy lit for concerts and the entire amphitheatre is surrounded by a circle of 50 year-old muscatel grapes. The Black Barn Summer Concert season is restricted to a very limited number of events over Summer and bookings can be made via the winery and website.
During the winter enjoy the intimacy of an Underground Cellar concert, with the warmth of the braziers and New Zealand's best artists, the limited tickets never last long.
Each season we have the pleasure of presenting an incredible lineup of New Zealand's finest talent, catering to a broad range of musical tastes. Our eTicket System continues to provide a great way to purchase your tickets quickly and easily from the comfort of your home and Black Barn event tickets make the perfect gift.
