Queenstown musicians Sofia Machray (left) and Pearly McGrath will be among about 20 performers taking to the treetops next weekend for the inaugural Ziptrek ‘‘Treehouse Sessions’’.

The local musicians will perform on the tree decks on Bob’s Peak next Saturday and Sunday afternoons in Wakatipu’s first official gig — part of New Zealand Music Month — since the Covid-19 lockdown. Guests with tickets will watch them from below.

Ziptrek general manager Trent Yeo said the idea behind the Treehouse Sessions was to draw in the community.

‘‘[We are] trying to create a commercial model ... to support an industry that will otherwise, potentially, fail.’’

After musicians finish playing in the trees on Saturday, they will perform in the courtyard at Yonder.
