The National Live Music Awards were held across Australia on Thursday 6 December 2018. As part of the awards Magic Dirt were inducted into the National Live Music Hall of Fame.

The night’s biggest winner was Baker Boy, who took home three awards including the night’s biggest award, Best Live Act in Australia presented by APRA AMCOS, the best Live Hip-Hop Act in Australia, and the Best Live Act in the NT.

Stella Donnelly also took home three awards, including Best Live Voice in Australia and became the first solo artist to sweep the musicianship categories in their home State; taking both Best Live Act and Best Live Voice in WA. The only act to have ever achieved this was Electric Fields, who won both categories in SA in 2017, and this year took home their first ever National trophy, as they were named best Live Electronic Act in the country.

Also taking home three awards, Tropical Fuck Storm were named Best New Act and Best Hard Rock Act, while their lead vocalist and guitarist Gareth Liddiard was named Best Guitarist.

Gang of Youths added another two NLMAs to add to their tally; remaining unbeaten in the NSW Live Act of the Year category. The are the only artists to win the same category three years in a row.

They were also recognised for their mammoth year overseas (where they were at the time the awards were handed out), and presented with International Live Achievement (Group/Band Category) alongside Courtney Barnett, who took home the International Live Achievement in the Solo Artist category. Gang of Youths have further strengthened their position as the most awarded act in National Live Music Awards history, with 7 trophies now to their name.
