Celebrating Pacific Music

Saturday 13 June 2015
Vodafone Events Centre
The 2015 Vodafone Pacific Music Awards were held on Saturday 13 June, at the Vodafone Events Centre.
“Navigating the Future” was this year’s theme and the finalists, winners and performers confirmed the future of Pacific music is in safe hands.
The awards celebrated Pacific artists and their music, with 15 awards presented on the night – including a Special Recognition award for Sol3 Mio and the Manukau Institute of Technology Award for Herbs, celebrating their first two albums ‘What be Happen’ and ‘Light of the Pacific’ – with the tribute performance by Three Houses Down getting the crowd up on their feet.
The performers on the night were outstanding – showcasing the amazing depth of talent we have in Pacific music. The awards ceremony was opened in true Pacific style by Anuanua Dance Troupe. For the first time every performance was by a finalist - starting off with Team Dynamite, followed by, Sid Diamond, Maryanne Ito, Andrew Faleatua, TJ Taotua, Erakah and K.One. Every performance was amazing and showcased the depth of talent and diversity in Pacific music. The evening was closed perfectly, by the big winners of the night, South Auckland's own Cydel.
The awards were a true celebration of Pacific music and of our Pacific artists – united together.
