Finalists Announced for Music Managers Awards

Finalists Announced for the 2016 MMF Music Managers Awards


The New Zealand Music Managers Forum in association with NZ Music Commission, Recorded Music NZ and OneMusic are proud to announce the finalists for the 2016 Music Managers Awards.

To appoint a manager is one of the most important career decisions an artist will make. With the changing landscape of the music industry, music managers have never played a more important role than today. As well as shaping the career of the artist, and running their day-to-day business affairs, a music manager is now responsible for building and managing a range of activities, from crowd funding through to marketing.

The MMF Music Managers Awards celebrates the very best of those New Zealand music managers who support their artists every step of the way. The awards have become one of this country’s most respected music industry events, with attendance from managers, industry professionals and artists.
