About Great Things
Great Things is a boutique publicity business based in Auckland New Zealand, primarily working on events and music releases and run by Josie Campbell.
Within months of launching in July 2015, Great Things began to develop an enviable client list, running publicity for Laneway Festival New Zealand for three years through its big move to Albert Park. Great Things ran publicity for New Zealand’s biggest band SIX60 for four summer tours, including the record-breaking sold-out Western Springs concert in February 2019. There have been dozens more concerts of all sizes and genres, from Nick Cave to Khalid, Courtney Barnett to Little Mix and many emerging and legendary hip hop acts.
Music releases have included Neil & Liam Finn’s Lightsleeper, 2018’s local breakout hip hop project High Beams, Taite Prize-winning Avantdale Bowling Club and most recently projects by LEISURE, Bailey Wiley and Church & AP.
This summer, Great Things is managing publicity for festivals Northern Bass and FOMO 2020, featuring Brockhampton and the undeniable star of 2019, Lizzo.
Non-music projects have included Cazador restaurant’s award-winning 30th anniversary book, media management for the Northern Mystics netball team and PR for Techweek19.
