An upcoming fundraising concert for Muscular Dystrophy Association Of New Zealand Canterbury Branch (MDAC) is a lot more than just a fundraiser. Rage Against The Dying Light 2016 is a fundraising concert and a chance for Jason Beardsley to remember his best friend Kevin Jefcoate, who changed Jason’s life before tragically losing his own in a car accident in 2015.

We have a special deal on now for New Zealand Music Month, all our rooms are available to hire for only $25 an hour. If you haven't been to BeatBox yet now would be a good time to pay us a visit! For bookings and enquiries go to www.beatbox.nz.

The NZ Music Month Summit is an intimate series of master classes where delegates can get up close and personal with music industry agencies and find out first-hand how to make money from their music, what funding is available, and hear tips and pointers on how to present the best application for success.

This free event will include experienced music industry specialists from NZ On Air, NZ Music Commission, Recorded Music NZ, Creative New Zealand and APRA.

Make sure you start NZ Music Month off the right way. Dunedin's Kane Strang will be bringing the tousled charm of his off-kilter indie-rock songs to the Gallery for the evening. Support from Violet French, Candice Milner and Jack Montgomery.

Silicon has beaten out some tough competition to win the prestigious, Taite Music Prize for 2016.

Frontman and former Mint Chicks star Kody Nielson also receives $10,000 cash, free recording time at Red Bull Studios.

In 2012, Nielson was awarded the Taite Music Prize alongside his brother Ruban as Unknown Mortal Orchestra (UMO) for their self-titled album.

Other recent winners include Lorde and Lawrence Arabia.

Following on from the resounding success of our recent BoxFresh Live! event we have decided to do it all again! Expect another unique concert experience, with a brand new line up and location. We have a really limited capacity for these shows so if you would like to be part of the studio audience get in quick. Tickets are on sale now at http://www.cosmicticketing.co.nz/.
