Going Global

Going Global

Going Global Music Summit is a multi-day event with music industry seminars, featuring international speakers, alongside showcases featuring new music from national artists.

The Summit takes place around NZ and hits Wellington on the 6th of September. It provides musicians, producers, composers, labels, promoters, industry professionals and fans a chance to perform, discuss, learn, teach, interact and argue in front of an audience of like minded peers in an environment that encourages the global exchange of ideas, techniques and trends.

If you are looking to take your music overseas, come and hear from people who are working with both new and established artists on the global stage.
