Happy New Zealand Music Month!
Need an excuse to buy some new band merch? Ready to dust off your favourite t-shirt? Well, you’re in luck because NZ Music T-Shirt Day is ready to round out NZ Music Month.
Check out some of the incredible Ticketmaster New Zealand team rocking their favourite band merch:
The premise behind NZ Music T-Shirt Day is a simple one – it is a nationwide celebration of the music of Aotearoa and the power music has to make a positive difference in our lives.
For many of us, the music we love and the musicians who write and perform it have been some of our closest friends during isolation. They’ve been there when we wake up and, for many, have been the last voices we hear before we go to sleep.
Now it’s time to shout about how incredible they are.
Raising funds for MusicHelpsLive, an appeal launched by the MusicHelps charity to directly help those working in the New Zealand music industry, Kiwis are encouraged to wear their favourite Kiwi band or artist’s t-shirt and, if you have the means, make a donation today (Friday 29 May).
2020 marks the second NZ Music T-Shirt Day, and this year is even more important as MusicHelpsLive aim to raise much-needed funds to provide emergency financial and wellbeing support to those working in the live event and music space.
Kiwis are encouraged to dig out their favourite piece of music merchandise and encourage friends, whanau, and workmates to do the same. Take a photo and upload it to your favourite social media using the #nzmusictshirtday hashtag.
Need some merch suggestions, there’s a whole website dedicated to that here.
While you’re here, check out our NZ Music Month playlist, chock full of our favourite New Zealand artists.
NZ Music T-Shirt Day is taking place right now, on Friday 29 May 2020.
