THE HISTORY OF FRIDAY JAMS LIVE

Friday Jams Live (NZ’s biggest RNB party) first hit New Zealand in 2017 at Spark Arena playing to a respectable crowd of just over 7,000 fans. In 2018 Friday Jams levelled up and moved outdoors to the much bigger venue -Western Springs Stadium! The heavyweight line up included Usher & Lil Jon, Salt N Pepa, Eve and more. The event sold in excess of 26,000 tickets and cemented Friday Jams Live as a one-of-a-kind festival event that left fans wanting more. Bring on 2019, this year we’re going EVEN BIGGER - Relive 2018 here.
