NZ Musicians wanted for summer event series

NZ Musicians wanted for summerThe opportunity for NZ musicians to connect with thousands of Aucklanders in the region’s most beautiful parks is up for grabs.
Following the outstanding success of last summer’s Music in Parks series, Auckland Council is now seeking artist applications from all over Aotearoa to perform as part of the line-up for 2017.
“Music in Parks is all about supporting and celebrating New Zealand music,” says Auckland Council event organiser Leanne Roche. “Whether you’re emerging or established in the local music scene, we’re looking for artists across a range of genres – from electronic production to contemporary cultural artists.”
Other genres include pop, rock, jazz, country, blues, urban roots, reggae, soul, funk, classical and world/alternative, with gigs offered right across the region.
Music in Parks 2016 saw more than 40,000 Aucklanders turn up to their local park to enjoy great NZ music from more than 85 artists. Highlights include the legendary Shihad at Grey Lynn Park, reggae band Katchafire at Glen Innes’ Pt England Reserve, Weird Together at Western Park Ponsonby and Ha the Unclear at the Domain Winter Gardens.
From its beginnings as Peoples in Parks 36 years ago, Auckland Council’s Music in Parks now features 80+ artists performing live at more than 18 Auckland venues.
Take the opportunity to shine next summer and become part of the line-up for Music in Parks 2017. The series kicks off in January and runs for 12 weeks. To submit an application, visit before midnight, Sunday 7 August.
