Waikato Rocks Trust has launched their latest project– Tunes of Waikato. A project with the aim to showcase the rich musical talents of the youth from the Waikato Region, Tunes of Waikato promotes and enables upcoming youth performers through selecting, mentoring, recording, showcasing and making it easily accessible. A free event, Tunes of Waikato allows people from the wider community to discover and enjoy music and musicians from across the region.
This year, the Tunes of Waikato Youth Music Challenge will take place at The Meteor. Four bands will be selected from the entrants and go on to be mentored by successful musicians, recorded in a Hamilton studio and perform in 20 gigs across the Waikato in schools and education centres.
The first project of this kind in the whole of New Zealand, the Tunes of Waikato Youth Music Challenge will be running on the 18th of August 2019 from 10 am – 8 pm at The Meteor Theatre. All young musicians ages 12– 24 from the Waikato region are welcome to register as a solo act, duo or band at tunesofwaikato.co.nz and compete in this exciting event!
