The Official NZ Music Month Summit announced

The Official Music Month Summit returns for 2017 with a new format and a new venue.

This year the Summit will be held at Auckland Museum in the amazing Auditorium on Saturday May 20, which is also the last weekend of the acclaimed Volume – Making Music in Aotearoa Exhibition.
