The Last Day of NZ Music Month: Saturday 31st May

The Last Day of NZ Music Month: Saturday 31st May


From Cape Reinga to the Bluff, hundreds of events took place in venues, schools, libraries, town halls and on the streets that celebrated New Zealand music and its makers during this year's annual celebration of our local musical culture.

Normally at this time we'd round up the month, highlight some events we thought encapsulated this years festivities of which there are too many to list. But we're not going to. Instead we're going to suggest you catch one last show this weekend and keep dancing, singing, humming and going to see your local bands for the next eleven months - NZ Music all year round!
