Rugby World Cup fans can catch the free gigs and other entertainment at the official Rugby Village fan zone centred around Te Raukura (the Wharewaka) on Wellington's waterfront from 9 September - 9 October, as well as Courtenay Place during quarter-finals weekend (8 - 9 October).

Festival of Carnivale Producer Andy Scotland says the entertainment is all part of a fantastic line-up of 'off-the-field' events.

It will be a hub of activity for fans eager to share in the excitement of the Tournament."
