The Age Music Victoria will acknowledge the best music produced in Victoria in the past year with The Age Music Victoria Awards to be held on Wednesday, November 19.

Prior to that nominees for the general awards will be announced on Thursday, October 16 and winners of the Genre Awards will be revealed.

“Last year’s Age Music Victoria Genre Awards highlighted the wonderful breadth of musical talent in Melbourne and throughout our regional areas. It’s fantastic these names are being held up as the best in their field,” said Martin Boulton, Editor of the Shortlist at The Age.

Victoria is considered the centrepiece of live music in Australia and Melbourne the live music capital of the country. “Victoria is a melting pot of musical styles. The Age Music Victoria Genre Awards were established in 2014 with expert peer voting panels to recognise the most outstanding practitioners in each genre. Congratulations to all the nominees – we look forward to seeing the winners crowned on the 16th of October,” said Music Victoria CEO, Patrick Donovan.

The Age Music Victoria Music Awards will also honour Melbourne music icons Daddy Cool by inducting the band into The Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame.
