THE EVENT

After many previous events at the Aotea Centre, this year the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards heads to the wide open spaces - complete with audience moshpit - of Vector Arena giving punters a bigger chance to enjoy what was once an industry-only bash.

As well as plenty of celebrity presenters led by C4's Dai Henwood, the night will feature special performances by the pick of local acts. The show is on Wednesday October 8 and tickets ($47) are on sale now at Ticketmaster. The show will also be broadcast live on C4.
