Black Barn Events Amphitheatre
The Amphitheatre at Black Barn has been described by internationally recognised singers and musicians as probably the best outdoor venue in the country.
Renowned for its acoustics, site-lines and atmosphere it is a truly memorable location. Rather than simply being an uncomfortable slope on a hill, the Black Barn Amphitheatre was carved out of the hillside and purpose built from scratch. We went to a lot of trouble to ensure the space was the perfect outdoor concert venue taking careful consideration of acoustics and views and burying everything from lighting, sound and even eftpos cabling underground.
Large flat grassed terraces mean concert-goers sit in comfort with close uninterrupted views of the stage and the whole of Hawkes Bay as their backdrop. Every terrace is fairy lit for concerts and the entire amphitheatre is surrounded by a circle of 50 year-old muscatel grapes.
The Black Barn Concert season is restricted to a very limited number of events over Summer and bookings can be made via the winery.
