Smokefree Rockquest

​​​​​​​Smokefree Rockquest is New Zealand’s only nationwide, live, original music, youth event. Now in its 32nd year, the series of over 40 events reaches audience numbers in excess of 10,000 every year.

Founded in 1989 by music teachers Glenn Common and Pete Rainey, Smokefree Rockquest has now become a New Zealand institution.

Smokefree Rockquest aims to motivate young musicians to prove their ability and realise the heights they can reach in their music careers, and to encourage their peers to support original New Zealand music.

Smokefree Rockquest have released their recordings playlist from 2023, which includes Birkenhead College's band Anacrusia (at #1 to boot).
