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.
Those interested can submit an application via musicinparks.co.nz before midnight on Sunday 7 August 2016.
The series kicks off in January 2017 and runs for 12 weeks.
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.
