The Latest news & interviews

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.
