Due to ongoing Alert Level restrictions, the Pacific Music Awards Trust has decided to forgo a live event for the 2021 Pacific Music Awards.

Originally scheduled for Friday 1 October, the winners will instead be celebrated in an online awards ceremony on Saturday 11th December on the 7pm, screened by Tagata Pasifika on TP+ ( This will be pre-recorded in line with Alert Level Two restrictions and include performances from a number of finalists.

Rev Mua Strickson-Pua says “The Pacific Music Awards Trust extends their alofa to Aotearoa.  We are thinking of the saogalemu (safety) and manuia (wellbeing) of our communities and share our support during this time.  We acknowledge the historic moment, the hard work of everyone involved and this opportunity to comfort, empower, and affirm our community”.
