The New Zealand Music Managers Forum in association with Recorded Music NZ  proudly presents the 2014 Music Managers Awards


The MMF Music Managers Awards celebrate the managers who work hard behind the scenes of some of New Zealand’s favourite and most successful bands by recognising their achievements over the preceding year.

  • Self Managed Artist of the Year
  • International Achievement
  • Best Small Venue
  • Best Large Venue
