Nominees for The Age Music Victoria Awards have been revealed with A.B. Original up for Best Album, Band, Song and Live Act.

The Age Music Victoria Awards recognise excellence in various music genres and industry sectors in the state of Victoria for the previous 12 months.

Until 10 November, the music community can contribute to the final count with 13 public awards now ready to narrowing.

’Victorian music boasts such strong diversity, it’s important to shine a light on the best genre acts and releases of the year at The Age Music Victoria Awards. But in a sign that genre music is no longer marginalised, many of the genre acts have been nominated for the more mainstream public awards. We encourage you to vote for your favourite acts, venues and festivals in the public awards. Victorians are passionate about their music, and by voting and buying a ticket to The After Party, you get to give something back and join in celebrating our wonderful music scene.’’ – Patrick Donovan, Music Victoria CEO
