With Auckland Showgrounds currently closed, we are in peril. We have until 4pm Friday 30th September to hold out hope that we will be able to bring #Auckgeddon 2022 to all our thousands upon thousands of fans, staff, exhibitors, vendors etc. 
We have spent every waking hour working on this, reworking, praying, begging, and trying to find loopholes and ways to make this happen now so we can solidly move forward.
We have been talking with all parties involved with the venue, bot…

2022 Dates and Updates

Hey HeyHoping everyone is safe and well out there as we head into 2022 and the new Covid experience that is Omicron in NZ.
Here at Armageddon HQ we have been working hard on this year’s events and have been looking forward to finally getting back out there, however it is apparent that in the current Covid situation and the red settings, that while it may be possible to hold the Christchurch and Wellington events in March/April, it is looking unlikely and even if we can make it happen, holdi…


So, while we are all set to rock and roll, Covid has reared its ugly head again (hopefully for the final time, fingers crossed) and we are unable to host the event in February as hoped.
Instead, we will be moving the Tauranga event to our new dates (same venue) ofJULY 23/24TH 2022.
We know that this will be disappointing to many, but the loss of mass events while at red is a small price to pay for you and your families health and safety.
We look forward to bringing the event to the Bay of Ple…
