WellingtonNZ Save Our Venues Fest - Samuel F. Scott & Luke Buda, Estère, Lontalius + More

C.C. / Thursday 28th May, 2020 9:44AM

Pōneke's San Fran, site of countless amazing live shows and cornerstone of NZ's independent touring circuit, are hosting a special streaming event tonight in support of the Save Our Venues initiative, to keep our gig culture alive as we navigate particularly turbulent waters. Necessarily happening behind closed doors but streaming direct to digital devices for your viewing pleasure, local champs contributing to the festival include Estère, Lontalius, Samuel F. Scott & Luke Buda (The Phoenix Foundation) and more, brought to you by WellingtonNZ.

As everyday life returns back to something resembling 'normality', it's crucial to remember Aotearoa's venues are still operating under quite stringent level 2 conditions and need all the support they can get, so they can continue to bring you the awesome live events we're all desperately craving. Scope out the full details for the livestream and tune in from 7.00pm...
