The Government this afternoon announced their decision to pause quarantine-free travel between New Zealand and Australia.

Live Nation’s Mark Kneebone says Dope Lemon and Allen Stone are two of the acts who Kiwis will miss out on seeing.

Courtney Barnett, The Chats, Julia Jacklin all came in last week, says Kneebone.

He says Auckland's winter music festival will go ahead.

“We’ve sold out most of the shows so it’s not everything, but it’s a lot.”

The bubble will be shut from 11.59pm tonight and will be reassessed in eight weeks.
