Introducing Rhythm and Vines founder Hamish Pinkham’s latest event for creative minds: The Phoenix Summit

After 17 years at the helm of New Zealand’s award-winning new years festival, Rhythm and Vines, co- founder Hamish Pinkham has a new venture: The Phoenix Summit. Described as a meeting of creative minds, the one-day event being held in Auckland this month is a chance for budding music entrepreneurs and other creatives in Aotearoa to learn from some of the industry’s best on an international scale. Speakers on the bill include Ty Stiklorius, Friends at Work CEO and John Legend’s manager, Rob English, who has led the creative vision for Fortune 500 brands and creative directed for artists like Lady Gaga. Pinkham has a chat about what inspired the event, and why it’s relevant to all of the creative industries.
