Find your new favourite local musician

Grab your headphones and check out our playlist of top local tunes, perfect for listening to while you work from home or chill in your backyard

Estere NZ Festival

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the performing arts sector in Wellington – and with uncertain times ahead for our local musicians, artists and performers, we want to rally behind our community and #lovelocal.

With working from home, self-isolating or just keeping your social distance, it’s a great opportunity to plug in the headphones and enjoy some local tunes. Check out the Wellington selection on Bandcamp – 85% of purchases of albums, EP’s and singles are paid out daily direct to the artist.

Prefer something for the record player? Buy vinyl online from the comfort of your couch from Rough Peel Music or Slow Boat. While you may not be able to get it right now, you can indulge in a record spin when this is all over. 

For the gift that keeps on giving, stock up on some merch from your favourite artist/s to showcase your support loud and proud. Plus, you’ll have some awesome threads to wear when their live performances are back. The faux pas of wearing an artists merch to their live show is dead, wear your Wellington colours with pride.
