Otago Access Radio hosted a live concert to celebrate Youth Week 2014 and New Zealand Music Month.

The three-hour concert featured sets and interviews with 10 acts from Dunedin high schools and the Kokiri Training Centre.

''All the acts thought it was a great opportunity, because it gets their music out to a wider audience,'' Oar FM youth co-ordinator Domi Angelo-Laloli said.

''They all just want the chance to play to people.''

Youth Week was established by the Ministry of Youth Development to recognise the contributions and achievements of young New Zealanders.

Oar FM provides free airtime and training to help young people produce radio shows that are relevant to youth.

It also hosts a ''Youth Zone'' programme, from 4pm to 5pm on weekdays, on 105.4FM.
