Each September, the Going Global Presents showcases new music from across Aotearoa. It complements the Going Global Music Summit which provides those across the music sector — from artists to composers, fans to promoters — the opportunity to learn, teach, discuss and perform in front of an audience of kindred spirits. The exchange of global ideas, trends and musical techniques on antipodean shores is at the heart of  everything these fine folk do.

Going Global Presents 2018 is a handpicked selection of 13 up-and-coming artists covering every genre under the sun. They are performing on Saturday, 1 September across Whammy, Whammy Backroom and The Wine Cellar. This year folk trio Albi and the Wolves will be sharing the stage with indie pop darlings The Beths, Nigerian hip hop artist Unchained XL, electro-pop artist Shayna and loads more.

Tickets sold out last year, but you can nab them for $20 at Under the Radar while stocks last. Bands start at 7pm, with each artist playing a 20-minute set, so make sure you're there to catch your favourite.
