The Music Victoria Awards are happening once again and it's your time to make an impact! Taking place at the stunning Melbourne Recital Centre on Wednesday 20 November as part of Melbourne Music Week, the awards will celebrate the best of Australian music.
This year’s Awards night will feature live performances by some of the industry's standouts, including 2019 Hall of Fame inductees Vika and Linda Bull, along with first-time Awards nominee Gordon Koang, who is up for a whopping five nominations this year.
They will be joined by dark-folk metal act and Best Heavy Album nominee Suldusk and Bad Apples powerhouse, Philly, as well as former Triple R Album of The Week recipient and AMP nominee, Grand Salvo. Each of these artists will hit the Melbourne Recital Centre stage to perform their own standout tracks from the past 12 months.
Building the excitement, Bendigo Bank are also again offering generous cash prizes of $3,000 for each of the winners in the industry-voted categories for the Best Regional and Outer Suburban Act, Best Regional/Outer Suburban Venue (Over 50 gigs per year) + Best Regional/Outer Suburban Venue (Under 50 gigs per year). A financial boost for your fave? Yes. Please.
