It was all hustle and bustle in the UTR offices, while our editor absconded to Wellington to lark about and Annabel Kean took over the controls as acting editor. This week brought the musical revelation of the Top 20 shortlist of songwriters in the running for 2020's coveted APRA Silver Scroll Award, whittled down by an all-star judging panel from a longlist of over 200 artists - we'll keep you posted when finalists are announced.

Announcement highlights included the champs at Flying Out revealed the multi-venue The Others Way festival is returning to take over Tāmaki Makaurau's Karangahape Road district in September, featuring over forty acts and fourteen venues, including a new all-ages district.
