Country Music Dunedin Awards 2019

2020 Awards

Due to high demand this year's event has been extended!

2018 was the first year CMDA ran which gave Dunedin a chance to perform in front of a high calibre band as well as encourage talent from around the South Island. It was a huge success so we've extended the event to three days of auditions for audiences to enjoy (starting at 3 pm on the Friday) along with our Finals Show on the Sunday night to wrap everything up!
