Show a local music artist some love and get ready to win

We may be biased, but one thing is for sure; Aotearoa punches above its weight with our local musical talent. It’s safe to say that we can’t wait to dive back into concert life. From unassuming shows at the Powerstation to late-night haunts with local DJs, dancing until dawn is high on our list of things to do in 2022.

In recent years, successful independent venues, up-and-coming artists and destination festivals have been hardest hit by the restrictions. So we’ve prepared a plan to give your favorite local music the online platform it deserves. Plus, there might be a little something for you.

Walk in; Doorstep sets. We’ve teamed up with Samsung music lovers to bring you a wealth of hard-hitting music content featuring your favorite up-and-coming artists. On the program, all the good things; must-see competitions, save-worthy playlists and behind-the-scenes interviews.

It all starts with our search for your favorite Kiwi artist, DJ or band. Dive deep into your recent Spotify sounds – we want to know what up-and-coming creative genius has graced your speakers. In turn, we’ll show them the love by featuring them right here on Urban List.

But that’s not all.

Thanks to the team at Samsung, you’ll also have the chance to win $2,787 worth of brand new gear. Organize your life on the go with a shiny new Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and pump up the volume with a pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro.

The piece de resistance of this award is none other than the top-tier Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. The features of this phone are as crazy as they come: pro-level camera technology, a built-in S Pen, and a battery that lasts over 24 hours.

Yes, you read that right. Head to a concert, stay out all night, and hit up hungover brunch the next day without ever needing to charge your phone. It looks like the dream.
