The Best In NZ Music 2023

Posted by Lee Densem


Please excuse the bad NZ music-related pun above, but it just felt true.We say screw the weather, take the pleasure with you! We did just that with this year with some special live performances at Friday Night Bites from Dead Favours, Georgia Lines, Aidan Fine, and Rodney Fisher. And we definitely kept doing it as we added many splendid Kiwi tracks to our Spotify playlist as they've cropped up through the year. 

So, as you wait for El Nino or global warming or whatever to do it's thing to summer, it's time to go doofer deep into some doof-doof! Radio BurgerFuel's Best In NZ Music 2023 is here - so buckle up for our 100% slowly-getting-more-official list of homegrown goodies.
