The Powerstation is a General Admission (GA) venue.  This means audience is mostly standing, although very limited seating can be found both upstairs and downstairs.

Wheelchair Access

The Powerstation is wheelchair accessible, although we do not have allocated seating specifically for wheelchair users. Our security staff will find a place for you within the venue with a good view - please arrive early and speak to security upon arrival, so that we can secure the best vantage point for you.

Age Restrictions

Unless stated otherwise, all Powerstation shows are R18. Those who are underage will not be able to attend shows, even if a legal parent or guardian is present. This is a licensed venue and valid ID will be required. Valid forms of ID are: any current passport, a current New Zealand driver's licence or a HNZ 18+ card. If you do not have ID you will be refused entry.

All Ages Shows

PLEASE NOTE: Ticket holders under 15 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.  I.D will be required at the door.

Shows designated as ‘All Ages’ will have both R18 & All Ages Tickets available.  Audience members with tickets designated as All Ages will be restricted to the upstairs balcony only.  The upstairs balcony will be alcohol free.

During an All Ages show, R18 patrons can access the upstairs level.  However, no alcohol sale or consumption will be permitted. This area will be completely secure and clearly separate to the downstairs area. Security personnel will be in place to administer this, ensuring no one under the age of 18 can acess the downstairs area.

Downstairs will be R18 ONLY and alcohol will be available from the downstairs bar for consumption in this area ONLY.


Tickets are available through either AAA Ticketing or Ticketmaster – please check all information for each individual show, accessed on the Coming Shows page.

If you purchase through Ticketmaster online and have selected venue pick-up as your delivery method, your tickets can be picked up on the night of the event only, from the Powerstation main doors.  This service will be available from the time doors open only.

Door Sales

Door sales are available for all shows open to the general public, subject to availability.

Coat Check

Coat check is available at the venue, at nominal cost.

There is no designated venue parking available, although limited street parking can be found on surrounding streets.  There is a small, uncovered, public carpark directly opposite the venue (Upper Symonds Street Pay & Display carpark), located on the corner of Mount Eden Rd and Symonds Street.

If you wish to take public transport, options available include:


A number of bus routes run very close to the venue, stopping either outside the venue on both Mount Eden Road, or around the corner on New North Road.  Most routes originate in the CBD.  The venue is located within the 1 Stage fare zone - find out more about bus fares and routes.


The Mount Eden Train Station is close by, servicing the Western Line.  Fares are determined by the distance of your depature station. It takes approximately 7 minutes to walk to the venue from Mount Eden Train Station.  Plan your train journey here.


There are a multitude of local taxi companies available to transport you to the venue.  After each show, taxis form a rank along Mount Eden Road so that you may leave the building and have a taxi immediately available to you.

Accommodation Nearby

If you are travelling to Auckland for a show at the Powerstation, there are a good variety of accommodation choices close by.

As the Powerstation is so close to the CBD, we suggest you find somewhere to stay in the central city, with either the train station (Britomart) or the bus system readily available.  As above, both the train and some bus lines will transport you very close to the venue.  If you prefer to take a taxi, a reasonable taxi fare from within the CBD to cost between $20-$30, depending on exact location.
