2005 Montana Mission Bay Jazz And Blues Streetfest

5th January 2005

2005 Montana Mission Bay Jazz And Blues Streetfest, In Association With Endeavour Charitable Trust

The 2005 Montana Mission Bay Jazz and Blues Streetfest, in association with Endeavour Charitable Trust, is set to swing along Mission Bay's waterfront from 7.00pm until midnight on Saturday 12 February, 2005. Twenty five bands from throughout New Zealand will play simultaneously throughout the night. Admission is free.

The Streetfest's founder and organiser, Anna Ferguson, says the event is the largest event of its kind in New Zealand, and promises to be the most memorable yet, with an outstanding calibre of emerging talent set to take the stage. "To celebrate the event's fifth anniversary, we will debut the biggest line up of newcomers ever seen at the Auckland event, with 12 new acts - of varying ages - performing jazz, blues and Latin numbers.

The event has previously attracted 100,000 people and Ms Ferguson anticipates this number will be mirrored again at the 2005 event. Tamaki Drive will be closed from 6pm until midnight. Parking is available at Bastion Point accessible from Hapimana and Kupe Streets. From 6pm extra Stagecoach buses will run from Tyler Street in the

Britomart complex in downtown Auckland to Mission Bay. In the event of bad weather, a postponement announcement will be aired on Easy Listening i98.2 FM radio at 4 p.m. The rain date is set for the following day, Sunday 13 February.
