The Northern Ireland Music Industry Commission (NIMIC) has ground to a halt due to differences between board members.

Founded in 2001 to “provide strategy and services towards accelerating the development of a sustainable music industry in Northern Ireland”, NIMIC provided various educational programmes and a wide range of local and international showcases for new bands.

The voluntary closure appears to have come about when Invest NI and other partners withdrew funding due to “irreconcilable issues within NIMIC’s board”.

It is not known if another body will be established to replace NIMIC.
