Gardens Magic 2017 call for performers

Applications to perform at the Gardens Magic 2017 are open now – we’re looking for experienced musicians – or rising stars – who are willing and able to entertain big crowds as part of Wellington’s Summer City festival.

During Gardens Magic Wellington City Council showcases a wide variety of local legends and rising stars on the Botanic Garden Soundshell stage. As the sun goes down, the surrounding gardens are transformed with a magical lighting installation, and thousands of Wellingtonians come together for 18 nights of homegrown talent.

Whether you’re into folk or hip-hop, funk or indie, ragtime jazz or traditional ethnic music – we’d like to hear from you if you want to make a name for yourselves…
