Big numbers for Giant gig


Big numbers for Giant gig



I am giant


More than 3,500 music fans rocked out to I Am Giant, Fire At Will, Ekko Park and 71 Sunset at Auckland Council’s free Music in Parks gig at Three Kings Reserve on Saturday.

Sunny skies attracted rock fans from across Auckland for the afternoon concert with many taking the opportunity to bring their family to enjoy the music in a family friendly setting.

Paul Matthews, bassist from I Am Giant, says: “The crowd was amazing! There's nothing like seeing so many fans having a great time. We had a great time, the support acts had a great time; a big thanks to Auckland Council for putting it all on."

Mayor Len Brown says the event was the first of the big gigs in the series and is very pleased with the crowd.

“Music in Parks is all about sharing good times with friends and family. It was great to have so many Aucklanders come together for the gig and rock out in the park.”
