What’s On

Dunedin really knows how to put on a concert and Fleetwood Mac will be no exception. Visit the Octagon for a variety of free, family friendly events that showcase Dunedin’s talented and creative community.

Friday 20 September

  • 10pm – 11pm: Circulation Community, fire and performance from this talented group.

Saturday 21 September

  • Noon – 1pm: Jo Little and Jared Smith, a well known fixture on the Dunedin music scene. With velvety harmonies and nostalgically crafted songs that dip their hand into a pick and mix bag of blues, alt-country and soul. The duo’s set ranges from foot stomping to heartbreaking. Whatever the mood, the music will stay with you long after the last tune has been played.
  • 2-3pm: Loose and Colourful, a soulful mix of the best R'nB, reggae and rock favourites
  • 4-5pm and 10.30pm – midnight: Circulation Community, fire and performance from this talented group.
