    Whangarei and Northland are full of passionate, talented & driven musicians, performers and people who love live entertainment. We are honoured to provide a venue where musicians are able to perform their original material & jam their favourite covers and patrons get to experience live performances by locals as well as touring NZ & international artists.

    What days of the week do you have live music?
    At least Thursday - Saturday... sometimes we have live music gigs other nights of the week too!

    Tell us about a favourite live music moment?
    Last month we hosted OTIUM for a sold out gig. The crowd was pumping with excitement and support for these local music heroes. The dance floor was full of fans dancing and singing along to the original songs and funked up covers. We looked on, beaming with pride as we've had these boys performing at The Butter Factory since they were in high school!
