YouTube Music is Celebrating New Zealand Music Month

NZ Music Month is about celebrating Kiwi music and the incredible artists behind it--so, for May, we’ve decided to join the party and have launched a ‘NZ Music Month 2019’ shelf on YouTube Music to make it easier to find and discover homegrown talent.

When listeners visit the YouTube Music app in New Zealand, they will now see Kiwi playlists and artists right on their Home screen. This includes the ‘New Kiwi Cool’ playlist, featuring brand new local releases and favourites.

Highlighting Kiwi artists across all genres, you can easily journey from soulful Broods to the achingly cool JessB, and uncover the best in budding Kiwi artists here to change the face of Kiwi music, including rising star Bene (who was also named as one of our Artists to Watch in 2019) and emo pop group Openside.

YouTube Music is a music streaming service with official songs, albums, thousands of playlists and artist radio, plus YouTube’s vast catalogue of remixes, live performances, covers and music videos that you can’t find anywhere else--all simply organised, personalised and in one place.

Head to YouTube Music to further explore the world of music. The NZ Music Month shelf will be live for all of May for NZ Music Month.
