Artists who have reached no. 1 in that period include AC/DC through to The Wiggles.

Denis Handlin AM, ARIA Chairman and Sony Music Entertainment Chairman & CEO Australia & New Zealand, President Asia – “ARIA is delighted to stage the Number 1 Chart Awards in recognition of the amazing array of Australian artists that have topped the charts. In this highly competitive business, with releases from all around the world vying for the publics’ attention, one of the greatest thrills for an artist and their record label is to reach number one on the chart in the journey of building a long and successful career. That is what defines us all as record labels and these artists deserve the spotlight of attention and recognition.”

Dan Rosen, CEO ARIA said “A number one on the ARIA Charts is a wonderful achievement for an Australian artist and we are excited to be able to honour this accolade at the ARIA #1Awards. This year’s recipients are a mix of established and new artists across a diverse range of genres, demonstrating the ongoing vitality of the Australian music industry. ”
