About Māngere Love

Māngere Love is an annual event during the NZ Music month of May in which local emerging talent have the opportunity to perform alongside established artists in front of their local community.  It began as a partnership with the Māngere Town Centre and RAN Events in response to the lack of live music performance opportunities in this thriving and talented community. Since 2009, this homegrown event has been held on the humble Māngere Town Centre stage, and has continued to provide opportunities for local emerging talent to share the stage alongside established artists such as Aradhna, Annie Crummer, Betty-Anne Monga, Charlie Pome’e (of Three Houses Down), Emma Paki, TJ Taotua and Swiss.  Over the past 9 years, it has become a signature event within the local music community.
