The first details for the 2012 Jagermeister Independent Music Awards have been announced.
The seventh year of the awards are presented again by the Australian Independent Record Labels association to celebrate the best and brightest in Australian independent music.
They remind us that it’s been another flagship year for Aussie music, with local and global success for artists like Gotye, The Jezabels, The Temper Trap, Lanie Lane, The Bamboos, Husky and many many more.
Nominees need to have had material released between 1 August 2011 and 31 July 2012. In addition to the slew of awards voted on by media, artists, and industry reps, there’s a new category for 2012: Best Australian Independent Label.
Keep an eye out for nominations, presenters and performers in the coming weeks and months.
The 7th Annual Jagermeister Independent Music Awards will take place for the second year at performing arts space Revolt in Kensington, on Tuesday 16 October. Check out Noise11 chatting to nominees at last year’s event.
