The need-to-know information for Pink's Dunedin concert

goss 30/08/2018

After a year of waiting, Pink has finally arrived in New Zealand!

If you are planning on attending Pink's Dunedin concert at Forsyth Barr Stadium, we have all the need-to-know information to help make your night the best it can be.

Gates for General Admission will be open at 5.30PM, and security will be doing full bag searches, security wanding and pat downs at entry - so allow for extra time.

Australian band The Rubens will be opening for Pink at 7.30PM. Watch out for a special appearance with NZ's own Sahara Skye on stage with them too.

Pink's show will most likely begin at 8.45PM, and finish at approximately 10.35PM.

Parking & Transport

For those driving in, roads surrounding the stadium will be restricted from 4PM and closed by 5PM.

There is no parking at the venue (except seven mobility parks for mobility parking permit holders), but Forsyth Barr Stadium suggests using the walkway linking the wharf area from Wickliffe Street near the corner of Fryatt Street to Forsyth Barr Stadium. There is free car parking all around this area.

They will also be operating free shuttle buses between the Octagon central carriageway to the Stadium every five minutes between 4PM and 8PM.

Shuttle buses returning to the Octagon will be available from Harbour Terrace immediately after the concert.

For those using public transportation, the council will have additional buses on Saturday, looping and travelling to South Dunedin, Mosgiel and North Dunedin. For more, check the DCC website.
