Background to the b.Net Music Awards

in the beginning…

mainstream music awards were staged by RIANZ, the major record companies umbrella organization. But the people grew restless and cried out for a change. They wanted an awards ceremony that expanded on the mainstream categories and that gave them the chance to vote. Auckland's 95bFM heard their cries, and in 1998 the 95bFM Music Awards were held at the Mandalay Event Centre in Auckland.

and then there was…

the b.Net NZ Music Awards. In 1999 the awards grew to include the other b.Net stations Radio 1 (Dunedin), Radio Control (Palmerston North), RDU (Christchurch), Radio Active (Wellington) & The Most (New Plymouth). These stations feature specialist shows, personalities and new music. Especially New Zealand music. Together they put together a music awards ceremony which included people's choice categories, giving the people of New Zealand the chance to vote.

today…

The b.Net NZ Music Awards have reached their sixth year. The people continue to vote, with passion and commitment, for their favourite New Zealand music at www.b.net.co.nz

The winning nominees will be announced at this years b.Net NZ Music Awards, on Fri Sept 19th at the Bruce Mason Centre in Auckland. As always these awards promise to be a true celebration of the diversity surging forth from the New Zealand music scene.
