Going Global Music Summit


Going Global Music Summit is an annual showcase of new music featuring national artists, occurring in September alongside the Going Global Music Summit industry seminars. The Summit takes place in central Auckland and is produced by IMNZ in partnership with NZ Music Commission and Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development.

Going Global Music Summit provides musicians, producers, composers, labels, promoters, industry professionals and fans a chance to perform, discuss, learn, teach, and interact in front of an audience of like-minded peers in an environment that encourages the global exchange of ideas, techniques and trends.

Going Global Music Summit presents an exciting schedule of live music events alongside a daytime program of vibrant panels, presentations, workshops and discussion. The focus is on new music and as such the live music showcases aim to reflect originality in contemporary live music practice.


“Going Global is now a keystone event on the New Zealand music industry calendar that I would recommend to anyone serious about the New Zealand market and New Zealand music in general.” HENRY COMPTON, THE ORCHARD
