Our music mission is to get more New Zealand music on radio, online, on any platform where the audience is.
Find out how to apply to one of our two New Music funding schemes.
When we’ve funded a great song, our next job is to help put it in front of an audience.
NewTracks: we promote songs to radio stations so they'll play them.
Music programmes: we fund a number of programmes on radio and TV that showcase New Zealand music and artists.
NZ music online: we reach out to the audience on line.
We have advice, templates and resources to help you get your song funded and recorded, and to help you find an audience - on radio, on TV and on line.
This month we have funded 20 great new tracks to the tune of $180,000.

NZ On Air is moving to a single funding strategy for all content investments, in order to remain flexible and relevant in a fast-changing, converging media environment.
NZ On Air’s support for new music is changing to recognise the fast changing nature of audience behaviour, and to better connect audiences with local music.
It's a great way to keep informed, especially if you are applying for Making Tracks funding.
