The Find and World Bar's Chris Barnhart and The Source's Scott Kennedy have been busy distributing posters for Friday's Burn Bright gig.

The evening celebrates the release of an all original Queenstown music release and marks the one year "burn-aversary" of the blaze that destroyed the popular World Bar, but resulted in the equally popular The Find pop-up bar and venue springing up.

Proceeds from the $5 entry and charity drink specials will go to the Queenstown volunteer fire brigade.
