The music industry came together last night to celebrate NZ music via the Taite Music Prize.
The Taite Music Prize is named after the late Dylan Taite, one of New Zealand's most respected music journalists.
The Taite is open to all genres of music from any record label, and is judged on artistic merit alone.
Aldous Harding took out the main prize and $10,000 for her 2017 acclaimed release 'Party'.
Headless Chickens were awarded the Classic Record Award for their 1988 album 'Stunt Clown' and emerging band The Miltones won The best independent debut award for their self-titled debut album.
