Manly Park will once again become a music venue, with a free concert taking place there in March as part of Auckland Council’s Music in Parks programme.
The concert, on March 9, 3pm-6pm, will feature JessB, Yoko-Zuna and Barracuda Swim School.
JessB is described as a passionate and energetic artist of Kenyan descent who is making her mark as the newest NZ queen of rap and hip hop.
While Yoko-Zuna has established themselves on the festival circuit with their unique electronic/hip-hop compositions.
Local band Barracuda Swim School, who were regional finalists in the Smokefree Rockquest this year, will bring their brand of alternative rock to the stage.
Auckland Council supports zero-waste and asks concert-goers to avoid polystyrene and plastic (wrap and bags) when bringing food on-site and to consider re-useable or recyclable packaging. All Council parks are smoke-free.

The movie will be screened in Rātā Reserve (behind the Leisure Centre) on Saturday, February 16. There is entertainment from 6.30pm and the movie starts at 8.30pm. The film is rated M (offensive language and sexual references). Movies in Parks are alcohol-free, smoke-free and zero-waste events.
