About the event

2019 is the sixth year of Construction Rocks NZ and set to be even bigger and better than ever!

Construction Rocks NZ, the battle of the bands for the design, construction, infrastructure and property industry is in its sixth fantastic year.

Last year we had two awesome back to back events at Q Theatre in Auckland to determine the finalists, and an on-line vote to determine the winner. It was a huge success and we will be doing the same again this year at The Mercury Theatre.

This year as well as the coveted CR trophy, the New Zealand outright winner will receive some music related goodies supplied by one of our sponsors.

The winners from each night will have their band biography and video performance permanently posted on the CR website “hall of fame” to ensure their place in Construction Rock and Roll history!

We will be inviting bands to enter from 15 April to 12 May; there will be an on line form to fill in on the web site. You can check out the entry rules and guidelines.
