The 2016 ARIA Awards will be held on 23 November 2016 singling the start of the Christmas marketing season for the major labels.

The three weeks leading into Christmas are the busiest weeks of the year for music sales. The ARIA Awards heralds the period by focusing music fans on the contemporary highlights of the year.

“On behalf of the ARIA Board, we are thrilled to be celebrating The 30th Annual ARIA Awards at The Star, Sydney – a night which will highlight three decades of brilliant performances and incredible artists across all genres of Australian music,” ARIA Chairman Denis Handlin said in a statement.

Australian music has had an incredible year with a record breaking number of Australian acts topping the ARIA Album chart in 2016.

“2016 has delivered an extraordinary year in Australian music – not only have Australian artists achieved success locally, but they are making their mark globally. We look forward to celebrating these accomplishments, along with memorable moments from yesteryear on the ARIA Stage with stellar live performances, unforgettable collaborations and special guest appearances,” said ARIA’s Dan Rosen.

There has been 19 Australian acts at no 1 on the Australian chart within the past 12 months and by the end of this week The Amity Affliction will make that 20.
