The Coronavirus COVID-19 is having a devastating effect on the music industry and kiwi music people.

Tours have been cancelled, international showcases years in the planning called off, with virtually no notice.

Venues have already closed with no sign of bookings for the future.

Music events have been indefinitely postponed and abandoned entirely.

At the heart of this are kiwi music people who rely on this activity completely for their livelihood. They and their dependents are facing levels of distress and hardship never seen before.

We urgently need your support to provide hope, advice and practical support to the music people most affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

We need funds for counselling practitioners to help those affected to navigate the extreme emotional and psychological impact of this crisis.

We need funds to be able to provide emergency financial assistance to music people experiencing extreme hardship.

We need resources we to provide targeted emergency support for the environment and infrastructure that makes music possible in our country.

Will you help us keep the music alive?

MusicHelps COVID-19 Emergency Appeal breaks $495,000 mark  18 May 2020

Posted by: MusicHelps

Kiwi music fans nationwide: take a bow! Our campaign to help kiwi music people whose livelihoods have been shattered by COVID-19, MusicHelpsLive, has now raised $496,551.35 from 4417 generous kiwi music fans.

We've now distributed $200,000 in vital emergency support to kiwi music workers experiencing extreme hardship.

Not only that, but in partnership with the amazing Save Our Venues team, we've provided $60,000 to help ensure that there are places to see and enjoy music when we are allowed to gather together again.

We can't stop there. We want to raise $2,000,000 to make a real and positive difference to the kiwi music community and to keep the music alive.

This Wednesday from NZT 7pm you can see P-Money, The Beths and Jon Toogood performing on Vodafone's Facebook page as part of the Vodafone Lounge Jam series. If you like what you see and hear, text "MUSIC" to 2448 to donate $3 to the MusicHelpsLive campaign to show your appreciation!
