Going Global Music Summit 2015 Lineup

Every year the Going Global Music Summit brings together musicians, managers, record labels and fans to discuss and reflect on various aspects of the music industry, with the aim of encouraging an exchange of ideas.

New Zealand being a tiny little island in the middle of nowhere means it can be that much harder for bands to reach an international audience. This year the NZ Music Commission has assembled a diverse range of speakers to speak at the summit over the first weekend of September.

Here is the full list of speakers:
Woody McDonald (Booker, Meredith Festival & Golden Plains Festival, AUST)
