New Zealand Played utilises the commercial reach of AMS Nightlife - New Zealand's largest music subscription service for business – and the technology of crowdDJ® to encourage consumers to pick Kiwi music in more than 1,200 venues across the country.
An estimated 1 million people hear our music every week in bars, restaurants, cafes, gyms, retail, and entertainment- a much larger reach than most radio stations! Consumers also pick up to 4000 songs per month per venue on crowdDJ® kiosks and apps, allowing music lovers to choose the Kiwi music they want to listen to in bars, retail and gyms.
This campaign started as an initiative to support NZ Music Month in May 2021, and has grown into so much more than that. It is a platform to showcase and support homegrown talent whether new, independent, classic, rock, jazz or favourites all year round.
We have a wealth of music talent right here in our own backyard, so explore your favourite Kiwi artists, or listen to some new ones at your favourite local AMS Nightlife and crowdDJ®-supported venue.
Any Kiwi song that plays through our network of clients will ensure a New Zealand artist gets paid.
