Australian Radio spun Australian Music over 900,000 times in 2018

Australian radio paid greater attention to Australian music in 2018 with almost 50,000 most spins this year.

“It was a great year for local music,” said AirCheck’s Riarne Gale. “Of the 4 million songs played on radio this year, almost 900,000 were Australian. Overall, Australian tracks received 49,755 more spins than last year”.

The most played Australian song for 2018 was 5 Seconds of Summer ‘Youngblood’. The next top 5 artists were Dean Lewis (Be Alright), Amy Shark (I Said Hi), Vance Joy (We’re Going Home) and Conrad Sewell (Healing Hands).

22 Australian songs registered in the Top 100 this year but some you can eliminate as true Australian recordings. Songs by David Guetta featuring Sia, Zayn featuring Sia and Jonas Blue featuring William Singe are stretching the definition of “Australian music” as they are US or UK music just featuring an Australian act (and in Sia’s case, an Australian act who hasn’t been a resident for over 10 years).

On the non-resident front you also have Keith Urban, Kylie Minogue, Troye Sivan and Conrad Sewell who also live and record outside of Australia.

However it is great news for Sydney’s Gang of Youths, Dean Lewis, Guy Sebastian, PNAU and 5 Seconds of Summer, Amy Shark from the Gold Coast, Canberra’s Peking Duk, The Rubens from Menangle, Melbourne’s Vance Joy, Brisbane’s Sheppard and Darwin’s Jessica Mauboy.
