NZ On Air (the Broadcasting Commission) was set up in 1989 to ensure New Zealand culture and identity is well represented on the nation’s airwaves. One of the key local content goals is to promote NZ music on broadcast and online platforms to connect great songs with a variety of New Zealand audiences.

NZ On Air runs two Music funding schemes under the New Music banner – New Music Single and New Music Project. These are to help with the costs of recording, video content and promotion of songs with great potential to connect with audiences.

NZ On Air also funds new NZ music features and shows on commercial and alternative radio stations, music TV, iHeartRadio and other platforms, as well as promoting curated NZ music playlists through platforms such as Spotify, YouTube and Apple Music.

NZ On Air also delivers a collection of new NZ music each month to broadcast and online media via the New Tracks service (previously Kiwi Hit Disc).

NZ On Air has a presence across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the most popular online music platforms. Search nzonairmusic.
