NZ Music Month : May 2005 – One Month To Go!

NZ Music Month : May 2005 – One Month To Go!

New Zealand Music Month turns five this May, and to mark the event the iconic target takes a fashion tip from musicians nationwide and goes black.

Posters, stickers and the new black NZ Music Month logo are available now – email to request any of these.

With one month to go, planning for the festivities are coming together nicely. Look out over the next few weeks when we will be sending you info about:

The launch of the new NZ Music Month website

The official calendar of events for NZ Music Month

The artists selected to play at the exclusive RBA Showcase, the show which has previously introduced the NZ radio industry to performers such as Scribe, Brooke Fraser and Adeaze

The much sought after NZ Music Month T-shirts being on sale to the public for the first time ever!

Since its inception in 2001 under the aegis of the Kiwi Music Action Group, NZ Music Month has provided a platform to celebrate all genres of music in Aotearoa. Local content on NZ radio reached a record 25.47% in the third week of NZ Music Month last year, a massive increase on the 10.77% achieved five years earlier in May 2001. We’ll be looking forward to the same – if not better! – results in 2005.

As radio continues to show a superb commitment to NZ Music Month, an ever-growing number of cultural and commercial players come together to celebrate NZ music in May: from television broadcasters, retailers and fashion media to art galleries and libraries.

The NZ Music Month Committee meets fortnightly and its members represent a wide range of organisations associated with the NZ music industry, including the Recording Industry Association of NZ (RIANZ), Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA), NZ On Air, Radio Broadcasters Association (RBA), New Zealand Music Industry Commission (NZMIC), Independent Music NZ (IMNZ) and Music Managers Forum (MMF).
