ARIA Week 2014 Program Announced

Celebrating its third year, ARIA Week will return in 2014, with a week-long program of gigs, showcases, conferences and events taking place in and around Sydney in celebration of Australian music in the lead-up to the 2014 ARIA Awards.

Running from November 21st until December 4th, ARIA Week features a hugely impressive line-up of acts from across the country that will showcase the dynamic and diverse music the country has to offer.

Sydney will be spoiled for choice with acts like Hilltop Hoods, Kingswood, Megan Washington, Deep Sea Arcade, Buried In Verona, Citizen Kay, Meg Mac and L-fresh The Lion among the acts that will play showcases in venues across the city.

Sony Music Australia’s showcase will be held at Sydney’s Beresford Hotel and will feature performances from Gang Of Youths, Holy Holy, Jackie Onassis and Little Sea. No tickets are available to the public, but Music Feeds will be offering 20 special double passes for the event.
