They’ll also be tipping their hat to New Zealand music royalty, reaching into the pages of national treasure Dave Dobbyn’s songbook to rework one of his iconic tunes.

Each artist has chosen their top three Dobbyn songs and it’s up to their fellow Kiwis to decide which song each of them will cover. Music-lovers can cast their vote on Vodafone’s Facebook page – voting is open from now until 5pm Tuesday 7th May. One of the artist’s in-studio sets will be released each week throughout the rest of May.
