Backbeat has been set up to help promote music in New Zealand.

With a look, feel and atmosphere unlike any other venue in New Zealand, Backbeat is said to be a music museum designed for private functions/live music and public events.

Having some of the best quality instrument backline & PA gear, Backbeat is ideal for artists/bands to put their next shindig together and showcase their material, launch their albums and play gigs.

It is also used for music related clinics/seminars, product launches, exclusive after-parties or hired out for private functions.

Companies and organisations such as New Zealand on Air, Big Day Out, TVNZ, TV3, Four, NZ Herald, Frontier Touring, Sony Music, Warners, Universal, Music Managers Forum, Air New Zealand, Craggyrange Winery, Oxfam, SmokefreeRockquest and Play it Strange have all used Backbeat as a private music industry venue to promote their causes.

Backbeat is situated at 100 Karangahape Rd, upstairs above the Auckland Rockshop.
