Auckland City Limits was announced today and will be staged at Western Springs on Saturday March 19 2016.
It's a new multi-genre summer music festival that promoters hope will help replace the Big Day Out for local music fans.
There is a line-up of 40 or so acts which are still under wraps and will be out early next month.
The show is the first international extension of the annual Austin City Limits music festival in the Texas capital.
Last year the Texas show had Eminem, Pearl Jam, Outkast, and Calvin Harris as headliners and next month's acts include Foo Fighters, Drake, the Strokes, and Florence and The Machine.
Details you need to know:
Music stages: Four
Number of music acts: Forty or so with a near 50-50 split slightly in favour of international acts.
Price: Under $200 hopes Campbell Smith (Ex Big Day Out promoter who is now a partner in the new venture.) Registering on aucklandcitylimits.com will get you in line for access to a limited number of early bird tickets at $99.
