FREEZE YA BITS OFF BUSKING - 2022 CANCELLED

Every year at Queen’s Birthday weekend, buskers take to the streets of Gore for literally the coolest busking competition in New Zealand.

Freeze Ya Bits Off is one of the key events in the New Zealand Country Music Festival, and is set to grow even more.

The event is held over three days, Friday to Sunday, with auditions and a grand finale on Sunday afternoon. You can even get some radio experience and exposure on Friday afternoon with the crew at CaveFM.

There is a total prize pool of $5,000 and two prizes of $1,300, so it's well worth freezing your bits off and entering this event!
