Vance Joy, Flight Facilities & More To Perform At 2015 ARIA Awards

Written by Tom Williams on November 6, 2015

One of the biggest nights on the Australian music calendar, the ARIA Awards, is set to host performances by the likes of singer-songwriter Vance Joy and electronic duos Flight Facilities and Hermitude later this month.

Other acts named on this year’s list of ARIA Awards performers include Peking Duk, The Veronicas, Jarryd James, Conrad Sewell and Tina Arena, who will treat the crowd to a special performance as she is finally inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame.

Last year’s ARIA Awards featured performances from the likes of Chet Faker, Sheppard and Hilltop Hoods. This year, a solid list of ten performing acts (below) has been announced, with international performers still to come.

The 2015 ARIA Awards are going down at Sydney’s The Star on Thursday, 26th November. Tickets have sold out, but there’s always room for fans on the red carpet.

The 2015 ARIA Awards Red Carpet special will air on Channel Ten from 7:30pm AEDT, with the ARIA Awards to follow at 8pm AEDT on the night. Music fans will be able to vote via Twitter in the Best Australian Live Act category during the broadcast.

The public can also still vote in categories like Song Of The Year and Best Video by heading to the ARIA Awards website, where voting closes on Thursday, 19th November.

Catch this year’s ARIA Awards show performers, below. The full list of this year’s ARIA Awards nominees were announced in October.

UPDATE 08/11/15: English chart-topper Ed Sheeran has been announced as a performer for this year’s ARIA Awards, which are taking place just before he heads out on an Aussie tour. Sheeran is also nominated in the Best International Artist category at this year’s awards.

In a statement, Sheeran says he’s pumped to join the performing lineup. “I’ll see you at the ARIAs, I’ve never been to the ARIAs, I’ve wanted to go every single year, so this is quite exciting,” he says. Catch an updated list of 2015 ARIA Awards performers, below.
