Get Your Music Into Oz!

Get Your Music Into Oz!

The NZ Music Industry Commission is pleased to announce a short seminar series taking place the week starting Monday 20 June.

The topic is ‘Getting Heard in Australia’ and we have a fantastic line up of speakers who will be sharing their experiences of getting Music into the Australian market.

David Benge is the manager of Fur Patrol and Cassette, a tour booker and owner of new Melbourne based independent label Speak n Spell (The Dears).

Amanda McGregor is the label manager at Sydney based ‘Hello Cleveland!’ and also works with OneLouder management. Amanda previously ran the office of Neil Finn before relocating to Australia.

Mark Kneebone runs Isaac Promotions, an independent Promotions and Marketing

working in both New Zealand and Australia. His offshore activities are primarily label management and consultancy for acts, labels, and businesses going into Australia. Some of Mark’s campaigns in Australia have included Concord Dawn, Jakob, Minuit, and Dawn Raid’s Australian launch.

This will be a very practical seminar – answering questions like;
• Which radio networks play new music? Unreleased music?
• What cities are worth playing in? How long does it take to drive there?
• How important is the street press – and what street press is in which city?
• What are the key differences in promoting yourself over there?

The dates for these seminars are:

Monday 20 June – Indigo, Cuba St, Wellington @ 6:00pm *

Tuesday 21 June – Zinc, Manchester St, Christchurch @ 6:00pm *

Wednesday 22 June – Re:Fuel, Otago University, Dunedin @ 6:00pm

Thursday 23 June – MAINZ, Hobson St, Auckland @ 6:00pm


* On Monday in Wellington and Tuesday in Christchurch, these are joint seminars with the Music Managers Forum. There will be a MMF seminar about NZ On Air happening from 5pm at each of these venues. All are welcome at both sessions.
