Brisbane, home of Australia’s biggest music conference BigSound, will host the APRA Awards in June.
The annual APRA Awards recognise and celebrate the success of songwriters, composers and publishers in all genres. The APRA Song of the Year is the only major peer voted award in Australia.
Winners of APRA Song of the Year include Gotye feat. Kimbra ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ (2012), The Living End ‘White Noise’ (2009), Missy Higgins ‘Scar’ (2005) and John Butler Trio ‘Zebra’ (2004).
Brisbane has long been recognised as one of Australia’s major music cities. Brisbane is the home of Powderfinger, The Saints, The Bee Gees and Savage Garden.
“The calibre of songwriters from Brisbane and world-class industry events like BIGSOUND, make this city a leader in the Australian music industry. It is a perfect place to host our 32nd annual music awards,” said APRA AMCOS CEO Brett Cottle.
The APRA Music Awards will be held at the Brisbane Town Hall on June 23.
