Organiser Su Dali Than said the Solidarity Myanmar Concert, in Dunedin on May 27 would spread awareness of the issue and raise funds for those struggling in Myanmar after the military staged a coup in February.
The event would feature kapa haka, guest speakers and cultural performances by ethnic groups.
Musicians from around New Zealand would play at the show.
The situation in Myanmar was very serious, Su Dali Than said.
Hundreds of civilians had been killed, and those providing aid were deemed treasonous.
Last month her mother’s uncle was killed for giving food and shelter to protesters.
Internet access had been heavily restricted, she said, preventing people from accessing information and news.
The money raised would be sent to the country through Mutual Aid Myanmar, a support organisation which helped provide aid for protesters, she said.
