NZ Music Month Summit

May 28th 2013
Saturday 25th May saw the official NZ Music Month Summit at Q Theatre in Auckland taken over by excited New Zealand music fans keen to learn from a range of music industry specialists.

Presented by the Music Manager's Forum and the New Zealand Music Commission, the NZ Music Month Summit was an extremely informative day of seminars that covered a range of topics including radio vs the online world, looking at your band as a brand, attending international trade fairs and being your own record company.

Attendees commented the Summit was "highly accessible, pragmatic and informative". Another enthused "great variety of speakers - some important and relevant info that will affect decisions in the near future".

The Official NZ Music Month Summit held annually has become a must attend event in the NZ Music Month calendar with this year's theme "Your Music As A Business" challenging some long held beliefs of the music industry.

A range of musicians, self managed artists, managers and people eager to enter into the music industry attended the seminars with a record number of new members signing up for the MMF Mentoring sessions.

The speakers on the day shared their knowledge and experience to an interested and engaged audience. Arch Hilll's Ben Howe commented, "I have always enjoyed being a part of the NZ Music Month Summit. It is a great chance to discuss various industry issues of the day - with both the audience and the panelists. As usual, the event was well attended by all kind of musicians and aspiring music business folk. Many of them asked interesting questions that get you thinking, even after the event's conclusion".
