Gig Guide Mukuna Teams Up with Music Commission
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - APRIL 2008
Auckland Gig Guide Mukuna Teams Up with New Zealand Music Commission.
Auckland gig guide Mukuna is working with NZ Music Month to help publicise gig listings during May 2008.
Mukuna is providing back-end support for all gig listings on the official website of NZ Music Month (nzmusicmonth.co.nz). All gig listing sent to the NZ Music Commission are input to the Mukuna syndication system, and then fed via XML to nzmusicmonth.co.nz, mukuna.co.nz, and to third party websites, widgets, and publications, thereby increasing distribution.
