Smokefree Rockquest

Smokefreerockquest is New Zealand’s nationwide, live, original music, youth event. Now in its 31st year, the series of over 40 events attracts over 2000 performers, and reaches audience numbers in excess of 10,000, every year.

Smokefreerockquest aims to motivate young musicians to prove their ability and realise the heights they can reach in their music careers, and to encourage their peers to support original New Zealand music.

The Rockshop Electronic Performance Award gives performers the option to use electronic assistance as part of their live performance in both the Solo/duo category and the band category. This will enable the use of Ableton Live, preloaded looping pedals and other similar supporting technology.

Musical successes from Smokefreerockquest over its 31-year history include Kimbra, The Peasants, Broods, Joel Little, Bangladesh, Doprah, Midnight Youth, Opshop, Annah Mac, Evermore, Ladyhawke, Minuit, Kids of 88, Die!Die!Die!, Pistol Youth, Bang!Bang!Eche!, Ivy Lies, Aldous Harding, Nadia Reid, Cairo Knife Fight, Cut Off Your Hands, Luke Thompson, The Datsuns, Brooke Fraser, Anika Moa, Anna Coddington, The Electric Confectionaires, Steriogram, Aaradhna, Spacifix, The Naked and Famous, Phoenix Foundation, The Feelers, The Black Seeds, The Eastern, Nesian Mystik, Bic Runga, The Checks, Julia Deans, Pine, King Kapisi, Kingston and Elemeno P.
