Now Hear This!
A Festival of Urgent Sound, Adventurous Music and Deep Listening

For 10 years the Audio Foundation has hosted a bi-annual festival bringing together unique and wonderful sound makers from throughout Aotearoa and beyond. In these strange and confronting times we are happy to announce the line-up and dates for this iteration: Now Hear This! 13 – 18 October 2020

With +70 acts performing at venues around Tāmaki Makaurau from 13 – 18 October, audiences are sure to find something challenging and heretofore unheard during this celebration of adventurous and avant-garde sonic-art.

Head to www.UnderTheRadar.co.nz to purchase tickets and join us for six days and nights of boundary-pushing sonic bombardment!
