The Whiskey Live Returns For NZ Music Month
Ponsonby's premier music venue, The Whiskey, has officially announced its massive NZ Music Month celebrations with the 3rd annual installment of The Whiskey Live 2012. 70 acts over 25 nights; intimate performances from emerging and established musicians from rock to pop, to DJ and hip hop collective, new and veteran talent, there’s something for everyone at The Whiskey Live 2012 series.
Unlike anywhere seen in New Zealand, The Whiskey Live has steadily become a headline attraction for New Zealand Music Month, with New Zealand artists jumping at the opportunity to perform at The Whiskey's unique and intimate stage set up. With a capacity of up to 100 people, The Whiskey Live provides the perfect opportunity for fans to see their favourite Kiwi artists perform within arms length. And due to the growth and popularity of The Whiskey Live series of events, new partners have come on board in the form of Vodafone NZ, Grabaseat, Beck's Beer, NZ Music Industry Commission, George FM and Concrete Playground. The 12th annual NZ Music Month festivities are less than two weeks away and already The Whiskey Live series promises to be biggest yet, with the release of the first two weeks of entertainment.
"Absolutely stoked to see the hype building for The Whiskey Live 2012. The artists are really pumped as they come up with new ideas to play different sets than they usually would. It's a great opportunity for all music lovers; they get to see their favourite NZ acts up close and personal. May is going to be a totally insane month." - The Whiskey bar owner, Andrew Bruce.
