Ever wanted to know more about the music industry – how it works, who to talk to, what you need, why things happen and where you should look for help?
Independent Music New Zealand are holding a get-togethers in the four main centres during NZ Music Month called Going Local 2019. It's an informal way for you to meet with some established people already working in the music industry, who can offer advice and knowledge that will help to answer some of those questions above. It is also a chance for us to get to know you and hear about your own sound and vision for the future.
Wellington and Auckland are both fully subscribed, but there are still limited places available in Christchurch in Dunedin this week.
Free entry, and ask us about anything music related!
Will Evans - Bandcamp (Label Ambassador AU/NZ) will be joining the local experts in Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Matty Newton - Amazon Music (Senior Music Creator AU/NZ) will be joining the panel in Auckland.
