Kaipatiki Sounds Great

Kaipātiki Sounds Great is a musical event on Auckland’s North Shore that generates solidarity between the local highschools through the creation of an annual music festival, as well as other smaller musical events throughout the year. YANZ assists with general implementation of these events, including creative direction and event management, as well as advising on topics such as youth engagement and community sustainability.

The event was delivered over 3 days, with the first 2 days consisting of performance and musicality workshops with NZ music legends including Mike Chunn, Bella Kalolo and Phil Dadson. The last evening was a multi-genre music showcase, celebrating the musical talent of the local students.

This inaugural event in 2019 was a huge success, and we are now working with the Kaipātiki community to deliver this event on an annual basis.
