With the Australian music industry in tatters thanks to two years thanks to border closures and Covid lockdowns, there’s never been a more important time to rally behind our local artists.
With that in mind, the good folks at ARIA have decided to make an event out of announcing their 2021 Award nominees, with a special live stream event happening on YouTube next week.
You can tune in to watch this year’s shortlisted crop revealed live from 10am AEDT next Wednesday, 20th October, presented by Channel Nine’s own Brooke Boney.
This ceremony will lead into the big night of nights itself, which is set to take place on Wednesday, 24th November as an “innovative digital show” with a stack of live music and special guest presenters, streamed live on YouTube.
The association is also officially turfing its traditional gendered awards for Best Male & Best Female Artist, in favour of one overarching and inclusive award category for Best Artist.
Stay tuned to Music Feeds for the full list of 2021 ARIA nominees dropping next week!
