Lauded musician, singer and now actor, Aotearoa's own Marlon Williams will be interviewed live on stage about the transcendent rise of his career and last album, Make Way For Love.

Summit attendees will be involved in discussions including panel focus on breaking into the US, UK and Australian markets, looking at how to get to new markets for NZ music including China and South America and the strength of independent labels, who now represent 39.9% of global recorded music. Crucial information will be delivered on how to get on the bill of international festivals, the new age of how to promote your music, and the oft-asked question "How do I get my song on a playlist?". Alongside blow by blow advice on how to apply for funding and rights as a songwriter, an all-important discussion 'No Ceilings, No Glass' examining the readdressing of parity for women and non-gender conforming artists across the music business; there will be networking opportunities with the speakers near the close of the summit on Saturday afternoon.
