The month of May marks Aotearoa’s iconic month-long NZ Music Month celebration.

Held every May, its purpose is to celebrate music from New Zealand, and the people who make it.

New Zealand Music Month started in 1997 when New Zealand Music Week was launched. But by 2001 it had become New Zealand Music Month.

Today NZ Music Month is run by the NZ Music Commission. They work with other organisations including NZ On Air, Recorded Music New Zealand, APRA, The Music Managers Forum, and Independent Music NZ.

It is a great chance to celebrate the amazing musicians we have in this country.

A number of music gigs are to be held around the country.
