Maggie is heading down to New Zealand for the first time for her SOLD OUT concert on Saturday June 1 at Auckland’s Powerstation. Fans who missed out on tickets now have the opportunity to win a double pass to the private Piha showcase thanks to Spark & Spotify by filling out the entry form on the Spark Music website.

Only 40 fans will attend the private showcase where they will be treated to a live performance from Maggie, where she’ll play songs from her debut album Heard It In A Past Life while beachfront at the famous West Coast beach.

Spark Music, bringing their customers the hottest concerts in town, pre-sale ticket access, meet and greets with your favourite artists and much, much more.


Maggie Rogers is a singer, songwriter, producer and performer from Easton, Maryland. After her education at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her breakout single Alaska and subsequent critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. Alaska has since charted in Spotify's Viral 50 in 40 countries, hit #1 in 23 countries and now has over 100 million global combined streams to date. The BBC, Tidal, Google Play, Vevo, Pandora and numerous publications including Rolling Stone, NYLON, SPIN, Billboard and more have tipped her as an artist to watch. NPR named her one of its Favorite Musicians and The New Yorker declares, “Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time.”

Rogers has been chosen as the first YouTube Artist On The Rise (AOTR) of 2019. The program features eight artists of varied genres over the course of a year. 2018, the inaugural year of AOTR, featured such artists as Rosalía, Brockhampton, Ella Mai, and many more. Rogers has also been named a Twitter Music #ArtistToFollow. The new program highlights one emerging artist per month by using their Twitter Music profile to showcase their voice and personality.

Light On – which is from Rogers’ Capitol Records debut album, Heard It In A Past Life (out now)– topped Billboard’s first Adult Alternative Songs tally of 2019. Rolling Stone awarded the single four stars, and praises Light On as“a cathartic counterpoint to today’s pop-empowerment anthems.” Streams of Light On surpassed one million globally in under a week and are approaching 25 million.
