Lakeside 2022 Cancelled

Lakeside 2022 Cancellation


Rotorua’s most popular and iconic public event, the Lakeside Concert has again been cancelled.


While the city remains in either traffic light red or orange the risk of being a super COVID-19 spreader is too high. As an all-inclusive, free for all concert it can be held only in a green light mode.


“It’s very disappointing, especially as we were going to be celebrating the 25th Lakeside Concert in March 2022. We just have to be patient”, said trust chair, Ian Edward, “it will happen eventually and it will be really worth the wait.”


Charity Applications

For each concert, we choose an official charity to support.


Apply on Behalf of a Charity

At each Rotorua Lakeside Concert, we hold a charity collection. These funds are then donated to a chosen charitable organisation. A representative from the charity is also given the opportunity to speak to concert attendants on the night. Please get in touch if you would like to apply to be the official charity of the next Lakeside Concert.
