Celebrate the music of our nation with Volume: Making Music in Aotearoa, the first-ever major exhibition of New Zealand music. A homegrown, hands-on, ears-on exhibition, Volume explores the soundtracks of our lives through vibrant and interactive displays.

From 'Loyal' to 'Royals', from C'mon to clubs, from 'Poi Poi Twist' to 'Poi E', Volume is a landmark exhibition about making and performing popular music in Aotearoa.

Volume takes you on a musical journey, starting with today, and winding back through the decades to the 1950s. Hear the songs that you've fallen in love to, broken up to and everything in between.

Get up close to hundreds of objects from the personal collections of some of Aotearoa's most well-known artists. Costumes, instruments, handwritten lyrics, awards, images and memorabilia will bring the story of New Zealand music to life.

Volume is more than just a history of popular music. You'll be able to step into a recording studio, spin the decks as a DJ, flip through records in a 1980s' record store, unleash your inner rock star and learn to play a classic Kiwi song in a 1970s' pub, or step back in time and on to the set of 1960s' music show C'mon.

Volume has been developed with the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame Trust (APRA AMCOS and Recorded Music NZ), and is amplified by Spark.

Come and celebrate the richness and diversity of New Zealand music.
