With help from Boosted LIVE, #saveourvenues have created a national, ‘Pay it forward’ fundraising strategy. The campaign is to help raise money for dozens of crucial, small live music venues across Aotearoa this New Zealand Music Month

Boosted LIVE presents #saveourvenuesDozens of campaigns over music month will go ahead, and each with a $1000 koha from Arts Foundation Future Fund, plus 5% of their Boosted campaign target, donated back to them. Starting with the campaigns from Whammy & Wine Cellar (Auckland), Darkroom (Christchurch) and San Fran (Wellington), each venue will nominate another venue to kick off their very own Boosted campaign, with their very own seed fund to get them started.

Pay it forward…

Starting on Monday, May 4th at 12pm:
Wine Cellar nominates Cassels Blue Smoke (Christchurch)
San Fran nominates The Cabana (Napier)
Darkroom nominates Dog With Two Tails(Dunedin)
Whammy nominates Neck Of The Woods (Auckland)

And on it goes… throughout music month we will see new daily nominations, with New Zealand’s crucial, small venues asking their communities, and the wider community of Aotearoa to help.

#saveourvenues alongside Boosted LIVE aim to help raise over $500,000 for venues across Aotearoa.
