TP+: 2020 Pacific Music Awards to screen online
Due to Covid-19, this year’s Pacific Music Awards are in a new format. While the awards were closed to the public, a special online presentation will be available to watch this Saturday 3 October at 7pm, and a Tagata Pasifika special will be screened on TVNZ 1 on Saturday 17 October, 9.30-11am.
The 2020 Pacific Music Awards will feature live performances by the new wave of Pacific artists: Church & AP, Lomez Brown, Lou’ana, Shepherds Reign, Lani Alo, and Disciple Pati.
“We hope our audience around Aotearoa, the Pacific and the world, will be able to join us on both those
dates. Amidst the waves of change, we have kept moving forward and this option allows us to maintain
the celebration of our 2020 finalists and award recipients, and the connection with our community at
this time,” says Petrina Togi-Sa’ena, Event Producer.
“To create the online and television content, we will film and capture as much live content as we can,
and we will absolutely ensure we adhere to the restrictions and guidelines for events; and provide a
safe environment for everyone involved,” says Togi-Sa’ena.
