APRA Awards 2013 Presenters And Performers Announced

It’s not long now until Australia’s music royalty commandeer Melbourne’s Convention & Exhibition Centre for the APRA Awards 2013. Taking place on Monday, 17th June, the ceremony will see the whose who of contemporary Australian music all gathering under one roof with the best of the best selected to present and perform.

First, the performers: taking to the stage on the evening will be the internationally famed Architecture in Helsinki, giving us a sample of what we can expect from their Splendour In The Grass performance with a showcase from their latest album Moment Bends. The Voice mentor and pop sensation Jessica Mauboy will also be jamming, along with indie rock darlings British India, and Ball Park Music will be presenting their lauded nerdy charm in their own performance.

The event will also feature its fair share of collaborations. Nominated for Dance Work of the Year and Urban Work of the Year, Georgi Kay will be a big feature of the night, also scheduled for a performance with APRA Ambassador Robert Conley. The shape-shifting Lior will be joined by Australian jazz identity Gian Slater. Abbe May with cohorts Sam Ford and Kram (Spiderbait) will also be throwing down on the night.

As well as the live music, we can expect appearances from Wally De Backer (aka Gotye) with Jenny Morris, MC Suffa and Debris from Hilltop Hoods and industry top dog Michael Gudinski.

The awards show will be broadcast on MAX music channel a few days after the event, on Wednesday, 26th June from 8:00pm, with re-runs planned for the weeks ahead, so there’s no excuse for missing out.

This year’s list of nominees is headed up by 360, with four nominations in total, and Tame Impala, who have two songs nominated for Song Of The Year. Check out the full list of nominees below.
