New Zealand Music Commission

What is the NZMIC?

The New Zealand Music Commission is one of the Government funded arts agencies. The NZMIC is committed to growing New Zealand music business.

The NZMIC receives financial support through the Ministry for Culture and Heritage to undertake projects in New Zealand and overseas to assist contemporary popular NZ music businesses and help grow the NZ music industry. While not a funding agency, our resources are available to support musicians and industry professionals gain higher levels of success at home and abroad. We also receive funding from the Ministry of Education for delivering music programmes into schools.

Many of our projects are arranged in conjunction with other Government agencies and organisations, like NZ on Air, APRA and Creative NZ.

The NZMIC is based in Auckland and you can find out more about our history and projects at:
