What is 8K.NZ?
8K.NZ is an internet radio station streaming a full-spectrum sound selection from post-earthquake Christchurch, New Zealand. Launched in July 2016 by a pack of battle hardened radio veterans, musicians, DJs, and young upstarts, our non-commercial and democratically driven station features “music picked by people”, and not some tasteless algorithm.

Expect a sonic orgy of locally sourced organic content, brand new tunes and old school classics merged into an eclectic mix of everything from the latest indie guitar tunes to glitch-hop. The current roster is comprised of eighteen shows hosted by a number of respected members of the Christchurch underground music scene.

To tune in or find out more visit and check out the live stream directly on the website. You can also listen via the 8K app which is available for free from Google Play for Android devices and from the iOS App Store for Apple dpple devices. The station is also available via TuneIn and
