This year on our tour throughout Aotearoa we have experienced incredible, perhaps renewed, enthusiasm for songwriting and original music in the young musicians who have come to play. After what was a hard year for the music community in 2020, it's been heartwarming and encouraging to see such a high standard throughout the regions. 

The Top 10 acts performing are:
Albert St - Waikato
Big Angry - Bay of Plenty
Coast Arcade - Auckland Central
Crumbly Jack - Wellington & Manawatu
Kenring - Canterbury
Single Malt - Canterbury
The Pills, Oamaru    
Esther and Matt - Manukau and East Coast
Girl. - Auckland Central
Mabel Affleck - Bay of Plenty
