From over 40 events from Whangarei to Invercargill it comes down to this - the top eight bands to play off at the Smokefreerockquest national final.
The big incentive is a prize package that includes a NZ On Air new recording and music video grant worth over $10,000, a place on the NZ On Air Kiwi Hit Disc, musical gear to the value of $10,000 from NZ Rockshops, radio promotional support for a single, and video play on youth music channel FOUR. There is also the MAINZ Scholarship for outstanding musicianship, the APRA Lyric Award, the Lowdown Best Song Award, the Smokefree Women’s Musicianship Award and the Skinny People’s Choice Award, voted by text during the regionals with the opportunity to open at the SFRQ national final.
