Devonport Folk Music Club

Devonport Folk Music Club meets every Monday at the historic command post, "The Bunker" on Mt Victoria, Devonport, Auckland, New Zealand.

The Bunker has been home to the Folk Club for over 40 years.

The best local and visiting overseas singers and musicians are hosted. A Club Night or Concert Night is a good inexpensive night out in the company of friends.

Please take note of door charges as they may vary for concerts. This programme is subject to change. It is always a good idea to ring first if there is something special you want to see - it is essential to book early for concerts, as space is limited.

                         All evenings start 8pm unless otherwise specified.

Find "The Bunker"

The DFMC's venue is known as "The Bunker"

Location: On Mt Victoria, off Kerr St, Devonport

You can find us by taking the lookout road (off Kerr Street) to the carpark on the summit. Walk past the Ports of Auckland Signal Station, down the steps to the grass track with the statue, and you will find the Bunker nestled in the side of the mountain, overlooking Devonport and the harbour.

The Bunker was built in 1891, as a command post to watch for possible Russian invasion!
