Naked & Famous aren’t just an awesome act from down under parading through Los Angeles’ The Music Box in a few weeks (October 17th) with The Chain Gang of 1974 and White Arrows. They are actually a smashing act from New Zealand who are getting lots of deserved recognition back in their homeland. We’re super excited to share that they’ve invited us to participate in a contest sponsored by Air New Zealand that would take some lucky fan to New Zealand to see them perform on their own turf.
Air New Zealand is giving only TWO fans of The Naked and Famous a chance to fly to New Zealand and get the VIP treatment for five days. But – it gets better. On top of paying for the flight from LA to NZ both ways, Air New Zealand (@FlyAirNZ) is paying for five nights of hotel accommodations and tickets to The Naked and Famous’ headlining show at Auckland Town Hall on November 4th. The prizes keep coming…
On November 3rd the winners also get to attend the New Zealand Music Awards (think the Grammy’s) as VIP guests of the band, a tour of Waihiki Island, a visit to South Island and the city of Queenstown and a traditional Maori experience on the West Coast. It sounds like an indie rockers honeymoon…..
All this in order to hang out with an amazing band who, by the way, currently has over 20 million views on YouTube. Their 2010 release, Passive Me, Aggressive You, peaked at 91 on the Billboard 200 and reached number 1 on the New Zealand Albums Chart. TNAF is also nominated for six New Zealand Music Awards: Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Best Group, Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Best Alternative Album and the People’s Choice Award. Check out the video for “Young Blood” below:
