The history of NZ Circle Jerks dates back to 2005, when a bunch of Kirikiriroa/Hamilton bands – pissed off at the lack of acknowledgment of their city’s music scene from the likes of NZ Music Month – decided to host their own event in celebration of the Hamilton music community. The event saw local bands playing covers of songs by other local bands, and it quickly became an annual tradition, with 10 Hamilton Circle Jerks held over the years. Ōtepoti/Dunedin and Ōtautahi/Christchurch have also gone on to start their own Circle Jerk events as well.
