Throughout the year, The Rogue Stage hosts live music concerts for the purpose of attentive listening and bringing touring musicians to Rotorua. Each concert is purposely built around the type of music, the audience and setting the stage to match the style or feel of the music. Described as “curated listening spaces”, its purpose is to explore and enjoy contemporary, majority NZ, music.
We invite a diverse mix of professional musicians to play music for you, ordinarily heard in the bigger city centres, such as Auckland and Wellington, based on solo, duo or band performances. For this event we have invited 3 DJ and we are hosting an electronic and dj Saturday Night Dance Party! Perfect for itching dancing feet and welcoming back the summer!
You can dress up in your finest or you can create your own inspired themed outfit. Please let your imagination guide you, we welcome silly in all shapes n sizes!
The Rogue Stage will source the entertainment, theme and decorate the space, while the Tea and Happiness team will organise a RAW food buffet, kombucha on tap and kefir cocktails. Prince’s Gate will run a full licensed bar and serve you drinks in style!
