In less than 24 hours, the biggest names of '90s pop will be taking to the stage as part of the So Pop concert series!

For ONE night only, Auckland's Spark Arena will be transformed into the school disco that you’ll wish never ends.

And so far the epic four-hour extravaganza has been wowing crowds in Australia.

If you're going to the concert, here’s everything you need to know …

Getting there
Normal transport fare applies for trains and buses to and from Spark Arena.

As there will be a high number of people entering the arena, there will be road closures and parking restrictions around the area.

If you're being dropped off or picked up, the best meeting point is by the footbridge on Quay Street.

There are some parking facilities in surrounding streets, but if you park somewhere that is later subject to road closures or parking restrictions you may be towed or delayed leaving.

The closest parking facilities are:

  • Arena Car Park (Dockside Lane, off Tapora Street, about 5 mins walk)
  • Britomart Car Park (Corner of Quay Street and Britomart Place, about 8 mins walk)
  • Railway Car Park (Te Taou Crescent, off Beach Road, about 5 mins walk)
  • Tangihua Street Car Park (Tangihua Street, about 6 mins walk)

There is limited onsite mobility parking for patrons holding a current mobility parking permit, but these spaces must be pre-booked as they fill up quickly. Spaces are allocated on a first come first served basis.

Free Uber rides are available to first-time users (up to $20) when you enter the promo code SPARKAREANA.

QUIZ: Which Vengaboys song are you?
Remember '90s band Aqua? Well they're coming to New Zealand and they haven't changed a bit!

You're encouraged to print your tickets as some phones may not be readable on the ticket scanners. Also, be aware that everyone needs their own valid ticket - including infants and children.

What you can bring into Spark Arena:
Please leave all large bags at home! There will be pat downs, security wanding, and a full bag search on entry, so don't bring backpacks or any large handbags.

All bags larger than 30cm x 30cm will not be allowed inside the venue.

Cameras with a detachable lens, iPads, GoPro's and selfie sticks are also not allowed.

You can purchase food from the bar that you can take into the show. Free water coolers are available around the arena, too.
