Press release:

Aotearoa has an abundance of world-class talent that you can see on stages across the length and breadth of the country. In clubs and pubs, community centres and RSAs, theatres and school halls, and so many other venues, there is no shortage of live music happening every week around New Zealand.

Celebrating our awesome performing artists and venues, the theme for NZ Music Month 2019 is Discover Live – focused on New Zealanders discovering their new favourite homegrown live act, and supporting the local live music scene across the country.

We are excited to announce that following the kaupapa of 2019, the Official NZ Music Month Summit makes a welcome return this May with an impressive line-up of panellists speaking on the most exciting aspect of the music industry – live performance.

Whether you are watching an emerging artist in one of the fantastic grass-roots venues around Aotearoa or soaking up a headline performance in an illustrious New Zealand theatre, there is nothing quite like the experience of seeing amazing music live. But putting on a great show isn’t easy, so we have gathered some experts to share their knowledge and advice with you.

Held at the Herald Theatre Aotea Square in Auckland on May 25th from 10am, the Summit will feature four separate panel sessions with industry leaders discussing every aspect of the juggernaut, which is live performance.

Attendees can expect thought provoking discussions and conversation, invaluable insight and information, and there will be a chance to have any burning questions answered at the end of each session.
