ANNOUCEMENT: The Music Victoria Awards is excited to be returning to the Melbourne Recital Centre in November 2019 for its 14th year continuing as one of the most anticipated music industry events on the Melbourne Music Week calendar.

The 2018 edition and the final year of The Age Music Victoria Awards was certainly one to remember. With a red-carpet entrance and seated event, the Victorian music industry celebrated the state’s outstanding achievements and best new releases, performers, venues, festivals and Hall Of Fame Inductees Molly Meldrum and Chrissy Amphlett.

After starting the awards 13 years ago, and being a partner with Music Victoria since 2013, The Age has stepped away as a partner of the event. Music Victoria thanks The Age for its vision and support for the event and the music industry.

Co-presented by Triple R 102.7FM and PBS 106.7FM, the big event will continue in 2019 as the Music Victoria Awards.

Now down to business with some exciting new changes for the 2019 Awards. After each awards Music Victoria survey the industry and judges to make sure the categories best reflect what its representative within the ever-evolving Victorian industry. After consultation with the industry it has decided to rename the Global category Best Intercultural Music Act. Those interested can learn more about awards criteria and definitions here.

The Archie Roach Foundation Award for Emerging Talent will continue to provide one lucky artist with a cash grant and mentorship as part of the Award.

This year, a small number of tickets will be available to the public and industry to attend the ceremony and the live performances, allowing the music fans to mingle with their favourite local artists. Tickets will be available to purchase in October.
