NZ Music Month celebrates 20 Years in 2020


Magic Music is excited to support NZ Music Month, now celebrating its 20th anniversary this May.

As Kiwis adjust to the new norm of living under Level 3, one thing remains unchanged and that’s the stellar music being made by Kiwi musicians. The theme for 2020’s NZ Music Month is: Support local. Stream local. Follow local. Buy local.

The hugely popular NZ Music T-Shirt Day returns on Friday May 29th, with Kiwis encouraged to wear their favourite music t-shirt and donate to the MusicHelps Lives appeal. The charity is providing vital support to Kiwi music people affected by COVID-19. New Zealanders can text MUSIC to 2448 to donate $3 or visit the Givealittle page. To make it even sweeter, Bandcamp are waiving their fees on Friday 1st May (PST) – so the team at NZ Music Month have put together a handy list of links to all of the New Zealand artist merch across the site.

NZ Music Month is run by the NZ Music Commission, with support from APRA AMCOS, Independent Music NZ, the Music Managers Forum, NZ On Air and Recorded Music NZ.  The purpose of NZ Music Month to celebrate music from New Zealand, and the people who make it.
