The Aotearoa Touring Programme is a matched investment programme (i.e. the Programme will match your investment), so applicants can apply for 50% of the eligible costs for undertaking national tours across the two Tiers. The different Tiers have a maximum limit for each grant. A national tour will include at least three dates.
Prospective applicants must be performing 100% original (or close to) New Zealand Music and will need to contact the Music Commission for access to the online application portal. When getting in get in touch, please send through the proposed tour dates, towns & cities, venues, why you want to play in these towns (previously successful shows, good airplay on local radio, interest from the area etc), and approximately how much you intend to apply for.
The application process will require you to have a full budget and business plan that will show how this investment will contribute to growing the artist’s business and career.
The March 2023 round of the Aotearoa Touring Programme is now open and closes on Wednesday 8th March @ 5.00pm.
