A gigantic, overwhelmed thank you, Aotearoa. To the venues, musicians, sponsors, and music lovers who supported our Boosted Live presents Save Our Venues campaign. What an epic quest, and a mammoth effort by all to help raise a collective $487,406 to go towards 30 crucial, small music venues across New Zealand.

This is part one of our journey to help to ensure there is always awareness for the plight of music venues. As well as support for them so they can not only survive, but also thrive as businesses. They should, as they’re such an important cornerstone for our music scene and the cultural framework of our country, and also bring so much joy to the various communities that they are part of.

Special thanks to Boosted NZ for being on this journey with us and helping us raise almost half a million dollars for such an important cause, as well as your huge support throughout, and your unflinching team of good folks. Also to MusicHelps for jumping on board and adding such huge impact to this very important conversation.


Save Our Venues NZ
is a group of passionate people from the New Zealand music scene, coming together to raise awareness for local live music venues across Aotearoa.

Our mission  was to firstly help in an urgent, grassroots series of campaigns to raise money for our country’s smaller live music venues that make up a crucial national touring circuit, and provide vital community hubs for local music lovers.

Looking to the future, we aim to listen to what music venues are telling us they need moving forward, and to advocate for them with government, council, and decision making figures in the music industry.
