Don’t Miss Dig the Gig


Welcome to the coolest University Band Competition in the World!

DIG THE GIG was established in 2021 to create a musical movement – a movement to get student bands out of their flats/halls of residents and into a live music venue to put on a kick ass show and connect to humans that should know about them but probably don’t.

DIG THE GIG exposes and unearths the bands through the fans.

There are no Judges – the bands are carried through the heats, onto the semi’s and into the grand final by a DECIBEL METRE.

That’s right, the band that brings the best live show and the loudest crowd night after night will be crowned winners of DIG THE GIG. It’s only Rock N Roll but it’s that SIMPLE.

Each band has to play three songs in their heat. One cover and two originals.

Dig the Gig has been created to nurture, mentor and help guide our incredible NZ University Bands through the to the next level of their musical careers.

DIG THE GIG UOC competition kicks off on Wednesday May 3rd at A Rolling Stone – Christchurch
