MLT NZ Gold Guitar Awards
Please see website
Join in and celebrate raw country music talent at New Zealand’s greatest country music event, the MLT NZ Gold Guitar Awards. For almost half a century, hundreds of amateur country musicians of all ages have travelled to Gore, Southland, to compete for the coveted Gold Guitar Award.
Three days of auditions and spectacular finals night events showcase the best in junior/intermediate and senior categories. There’s a country music showcase concert that’s part of the Classic Final (previously 40+ and 60+ finals), where a stand-out country music contributor is inducted into the Country Music Hands of Fame.
The Gold Guitar winner receives a comprehensive prize package to set them on the road to country music stardom.
This prestigious event - the longest running and largest country music club competition in New Zealand - is why Gore is known as the NZ capital of country music.
Where: Gore Town & Country Club, RSA & Gore Baptist Church
When: Friday 2 June - Sunday 4 June 2023
