Our Story.

Who are we?

Whether dining, shopping, working-out, meeting friends for a drink, bowling, taking a holiday on a cruise or checking in to a hotel, chances are the music and great visuals have been curated and put there by Nightlife.

Nightlife services over 4,500 clients across all industries from hospitality, fitness, retail, accommodation, leisure, dining, cruising, education and entertainment.

Nightlife’s world first innovation – crowdDJ®- with over 75 Million songs picked – has revolutionised the out-of-home experience, allowing people to choose their music.

It’s a full-circle success story that all started in 1989, when Mark Brownlee and Tim de Souza, two schoolmates, both engineers who loved music, invented a video jukebox so they could play the music they wanted when they went out.

Just as crowdDJ® does now.

The pair took over one bedroom of a share house to build and design the video jukebox from scratch and have grown from employing 5 people to a 120 strong workforce with a strong ethical focus on respecting the rightful owners of the music.

Still a wholly owned and Australian based-business, Nightlife has evolved and thrived through every incarnation of technology and is scaling globally at speed across New Zealand, Asia, the UK and beyond with international clients and brands able to access Nightlife’s music and content from anywhere.
