About the Going Global Music Summit
Going Global Music Summit 2019 is a two-day boutique music conference, featuring seminars, workshops and networking, alongside a showcase of new music featuring local NZ artists. Going Global takes place in central Auckland.
Going Global Music Summit provides musicians, producers, composers, labels, promoters, industry professionals and fans a chance to perform, discuss, learn, teach, and interact with like-minded peers in an environment that encourages the global exchange of ideas, techniques and trends.
In 2019 we will present a daytime program of panels, presentations, workshops and discussions, alongside an exciting schedule of live music events. The focus is on new music and as such the live music showcases aim to reflect originality in contemporary live music practice. #goingglobal
